Far From Home, Paperback / softback Book


A moving family drama of one young woman's fight to survive and to find a place to call home 1938: Sixteen-year-old Kate Monroe is living in Birmingham, far away from her family in Ireland.

Her parents have always doted on her siblings, Sally and James, leaving no time for her.

Kate harbours a dark secret, a deep longing for her cousin.

Feelings she must suppress in this deeply staunch Irish-Catholic community - even if they are reciprocated. Crazed by her infatuation, Kate is left with no option, other than to up-roots once more and seek out a new life, far away from the temptation of Tim Monroe. Will Kate find true love, or will distance make the heart grow fonder?
