A magical story of motherly love and the bonds of love between us from the number one bestselling author of Songs of Love and War. Celeste is mourning the tragic death of her young son, Jack, from leukaemia.
So when she learns that her nephew is coming to stay, she doesn't think she can bear to have another child in the house.
But when Bruno arrives, she makes him feel welcome and loved, even though her heart is breaking. She finds sanctuary in the little summerhouse at the end of her garden, where the quilt she was making her son lies unfinished, her love and grief stitched into the material. Having another child in the house brings back all her memories, but stirs up the love that has lain dormant in her.
Can she open her heart again? Can love triumph over loss, and hope flourish once more? A magical and beautiful novella, for mothers everywhere.
