Coming Home

By Melanie Rose

A magical, unputdownable read for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Giovanna Fletcher

A freak snowstorm leaves a young woman unconscious and stranded. Coming to, she has no recollection of who she is or how she happened to be stuck in the middle of unfamiliar countryside. All she recalls is the warm arms of a passing stranger coming to her rescue and carrying her to safety…

She awakes in an idyllic country cottage, a cottage belonging to Vincent, a recently widowed city banker who uses it as his rural getaway. Dashing and polite, the woman can’t think of a better knight in shining armour. While the housekeeper isn’t best pleased abut her arrival, Vincent’s six-year-old daughter Jadie, can hardly contain her excitement, chattering away excitedly. Trouble is, she’s been mute for the past two years…

As she struggles with flashbacks to her past, memories come back to the woman which aren’t her own, bringing with them a stream of questions. What secrets does Vincent hide? Why has Jadie being silent for so long? Will she ever discover her true identity? Or is she, as Jadie believes, an angel come to save them all?
