I’m very happy to let you know that my tenth novel, called The House of Memories, will be published in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the UK in October 2012, with other countries to follow. I’ll be touring Australia in October and, closer to that time, will post up details of all the library talks and bookshop visits I’ll be doing there.
The cover blurb from my publishers reads:
Sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are those that matter most.
Following a tragic accident, Ella O’Hanlon flees to the other side of the world in an attempt to escape her grief, leaving behind the two people she blames for her loss: Aidan, the love of her life, and Jess, her spoilt half-sister.
In London Ella is taken in by her beloved uncle Lucas, whose extraordinary house holds many wonderful memories for her. Along with other members of the very colourful Fox family, Lucas helps Ella to see that she is not the only one still hurting, and that forgiveness can be the greatest healer in a family and in a marriage.
For anyone who has ever loved and lost, this is an exquisitely moving and life-affirming novel by the internationally bestselling author of Lola’s Secret.
