Synopsis

An uplifting and heartwarming novel from the bestselling author of The Tea Chest. When single mum Olivia uproots her young son Darcy from their life in Tasmania for a new start in the English Cotswolds, she isn’t exactly expecting a bed of roses – but nor is she prepared for the challenges that life in the picturesque village throws her way. The Renaissance Project hopes to bring the dwindling community back to life – to welcome migrants from around the world and boost the economy – but not everyone is pleased about the initiative. For cake maker Olivia, it’s a chance for Darcy to finally meet his Norwegian father, and for her to trace the last blurry lines of her family tree. It’s also an opportunity to move on from the traumatic event that tore her loved ones apart.
