WILL THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME HELP KATY FIND HER WAY HOME?

'Rebecca Serle is a maestro of love in all its forms' GABRIELLE ZEVIN
'An extraordinary, beautiful, magical book' JILL MANSELL

When Katy's mother dies, she's left reeling from the loss. Carol had been her best friend, her anchor, and they'd been so close to their dream of travelling to Positano together.

Feeling untethered from her own life and unable to connect with anyone, Katy makes a rash decision. In a bid to keep her mother close, she follows in a young Carol's footsteps, flying to Italy alone.

Katy had imagined a holiday painted by grief but finds more comfort than she had expected. Then, in a sharp twist of fate, Carol's past and Katy's present collide, leaving Katy to wonder if she ever really knew her mother at all...
