Welcome Back To The House Of Memories
My 10th novel, The House of Memories, is re-published in Ireland and the UK today, with this beautiful new cover! My big thanks to my publishers Welbeck in London – 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 is 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.
The Irish Independent says “A beautifully told story with real emotional depth. Another triumph for Monica McInerney and another great story for her readers.”
The West Australian says “Filled with humour and sadness in equal measure…an emotional see-saw that had even this battle-hardened reader reaching for a tissue.”
Australian Bookseller & Publisher‘s describe it as “Very moving…uplifting and hopeful.”
