About The Book:
One forgotten discovery will change three women’s lives forever…Robin hasn’t been home for decades. After running away to London, she never expected to see her cantankerous mother, Faye, again. But when Faye has a fall, the two women are thrown together once more. The years apart have not made their hearts grow fonder and the ground between them is unsteady. Then Robin finds an unopened scroll – the last of the treasure hunts her much-missed father used to take them on every Sunday. A hunt he believed might change everything. Yet, not even this gift from her beloved father can smooth the way until Robin’s daughter, Amber, arrives to meet her grandmother for the first time. Amber is determined that the decades-old mystery be solved. Can a 30-year-old treasure hunt really 'change everything'?

My Review:
This is my second book by this author but my first women's fiction read by her. Knowing You was such an enjoyable read and this one didn't disappoint either and I am so happy to see that the author has a whole lot of books for me choose from. This was such a compelling read and so heartbreaking in places, but there was lots of love and joy too. It is the story of three generations of women who really don't know each other that well and the healing process they go through to learn about themselves, their family and learning to get over the past while trying to live together under one roof.

I was really pleased with the honest depiction of motherhood, in all its forms. It isn't all smiles and laughter, it's rough and messy and really hard, especially when the child wants to spread their wings and you aren't ready to let them go. I love how the women finally come together and work together to glue back the broken pieces of their lives. 

I really enjoyed this book and the writing style of the author. I am thinking of that back catalogue she has and The Christmas Calendar Girls sounds perfect for the holiday season.

With many thanks to NetGalley, Samantha Tonge and Boldwood Books for the giving of the ARC.
