A gripping and heartfelt story about overcoming the past and finding where you belong.
Anna Wilson travels the world as a professional housesitter – stepping into other people’s lives – caring for their homes, pets and sometimes even neighbours. Living vicariously.
But all Anna has ever really wanted is a home of her own – a proper one, filled with family and love and happy memories. If only she knew where to start.
Growing up in foster care, she always envied her friends their secure and carefree lives, their certainty and confidence. And, while those same friends may have become her family of choice, Anna is still stuck in that nomadic cycle, looking for answers, trying to find the courage to put down roots and find a place to call home.

Firstly a big thank you to the team at Books and the city with Simon and Schuster for my beautiful copy and having me on the tour.

I have loved Penny’s previous books in rhe Larkford series so was really excited to read this standalone. Her writing is evocative and compelling . The book draws you in straight away and stays with you long after you finish.

I related to the character so much with my own personal childhood experience. Completely thought provoking for me in that sense .

Heart warming and life affirming.

Anna is on a journey of self discovery and finding her own place both emotionally and physically .

Through challenges with people through work and her family she grows in strength and resilience.

Written in alternate timelines we get to understand how and why she is the way she is.

A great read which I highly recommend. Published 8th July and do check out the other blogs taking part in the tour.
