A Special London Edition
Book post from London! A treat today to receive my copies of a new edition of The House Of Memories, my 9th novel (first published in 2012), re-issued in Ireland and the UK this month with this beautiful new cover. My big thanks to my publishers Welbeck – I hope it finds many happy new readers.
The synopsis reads:
Ella O’Hanlon is running away as fast as she can.
After an unimaginable event involving her adored husband Aidan and spoilt half-sister Jess, she has to escape.
An invitation from her beloved Uncle Lucas in London throws her a lifeline. Leaving everything behind in Australia, she moves into his ramshackle, book-filled mansion near Hyde Park, hoping a new job and happy memories will give her the distraction she craves.
But Lucas has secret plans, plotting to bring light back into her life. Plans that involve her TV chef mother, stepbrother Charlie and his brood of children – and Aidan and Jess too…
A deeply emotional story filled with heart and humour, The House of Memories is a celebration of the power of love, forgiveness and family – at the best and worst of times.
