It’s never too late for a second chance at happiness…
Pearl Flowers has been hiding away for so long that she has forgotten what real life is like. Her quiet routine in a woodland cottage in France is restricted and lonely. But at least it keeps her safe, far away from the painful memories and secrets she left behind.
But then an unexpected phone call throws her calm world into chaos. Back in England, her estranged father Francis is dying. Pearl hasn’t seen him for decades since he pushed her away and destroyed their family, so she hurries back for a last chance to see him. But it turns out he has a final gift for her – a diary, written in a code that only Pearl can understand.
As she begins to read her father’s diary, Pearl discovers that for forty years he had been thinking of her almost every day. And as she reads on, secrets begin to emerge from the pages causing her to question everything she thought she knew.
Reeling from the diary’s revelations, Pearl realises that the only way to heal and find true happiness is to face the past. But is she ready to confront her deepest secret, the one she’s been running from all this time?
This utterly tear-jerking and heartwarming novel is for anyone who knows it’s never too late to find happiness. Fans of Matt Haig, Mike Gayle and Camille Pagán will fall in love with this beautiful, feel-good story.
