The House We Called Home

‘Love, humour, family and hope – the perfect ingredients for a summer read’ Debbie Johnson

‘Dramatic and fun!’ My Weekly

Irresistible, feel-good summer fiction, from Top 10 bestseller Jenny Oliver

***Shortlisted for The Golsboro Books Contemporary Romantic Novel Award***

The house where Stella and her sister Amy grew up never changes – the red front door, the breath-taking view over the Cornish coast, her parents in their usual spots on the sofa. Except this summer, things feel a little different…

Stella’s father is nowhere to be seen, yet her mother – in suspiciously new Per Una jeans – seems curiously unfazed by his absence, and more eager to talk about her mysterious dog-walking buddy Mitch.

Stella’s sister Amy has returned home with a new boyfriend she can barely stand and a secret to hide, and Stella’s husband Jack has something he wants to get off his chest too. Even Frank Sinatra, the dog, has a guilty air about him.
This summer, change is in the air for the Whitethorns…

Warm, funny and gloriously feel-good, this is the perfect summer read for fans of Veronica Henry and Milly Johnson.

Praise for Jenny Oliver:

‘This book made me want to fly to Spain and dance on the beach with a glass of sangria in my hand. The perfect summer read.’ Sarah Morgan

‘Brilliantly written, this is packed full of humour and there is a wonderful thread of love… A perfect holiday read.’ The Sun

‘Heartwarming, funny and wonderfully observed, The House We Called Home explores one family’s wake-up call with wit and wisdom. Jenny Oliver’s characters are so real and relatable they could just walk off the page.’ Fiona Harper
