One family learning to love again.
Cate Morris and her son, Leo, are homeless, adrift. They’ve packed up the boxes from their London home, said goodbye to friends and colleagues, and now they are on their way to ‘Hatters Museum of the Wide Wide World – to stay just for the summer. Cate doesn’t want to be there, in Richard’s family home without Richard to guide her any more. And she knows for sure that Araminta, the retainer of the collection of dusty objects and stuffed animals, has taken against them. But they have nowhere else to go. They have to make the best of it.
But Richard hasn’t told Cate the truth about his family’s history. And something about the house starts to work its way under her skin.
Can she really walk away, once she knows the truth?
Firstly thank you to Sj for my copy to review. I absolutely loved her debut book and its amazing to see its success.
This is a beautifully written story about love,loss ,family and secrets.
As a mum to children with special needs i could relate to the family dynamics that was shown. However it was good that wasnt the focus of either the book or the charactar .
A unique,fascinating setting for a story to take place. The words jump off the page as they articulate the surroundings perfectly.
Theres a lot of challenges in their lives and obstacles in the future . But working together as a team and opening up their home and hearts could be the answer .
This is a quirky book and especially as we are in lockdown , use this opportunity to escape into another world through reading.
Anstey is a storyteller and a joy go have met.
I wish her every success with this book which from the cover alone will be catching peoples eye.
