From the author of The Miller's Daughter comes a story of familial strength, and survival in the face of great loss
Will she be able to keep her family together?
After the death of their parents, Connie, Dom, Leo, and Pearl find themselves all alone in the world. They return to England and the only family they have left, their grandparents, Joshua and Flo Butler. The Butlers hadn't seen their only son Michael in twenty years, since he ran away with Rosa, the young woman who stole his heart. An unforgivable crime in their eyes.
The orphans, expecting a warm welcome after their long journey from Japan, are surprised to find that Flo and Joshua want nothing to do with any child of Rosa's.
When Flo falls gravely ill, the Butlers have no choice but to accept the help of the children they turned away. With the help of their new community can the orphans repair what little family they have left and perhaps, even find happiness and love for themselves. . .?
