She might not have much in this world, but it cost nothing to be kind…
Meet Miranda Brown: you can call her Mim. She’s jobless, homeless and living in her car… but with a history like hers she knows she has a huge amount to be grateful for.
Meet Beatrice and William Howard: Bill and Bea to you. The heads of the Howard family and owners of Venhallow Hall, a sprawling seaside Devonshire estate… stranded in a layby five hours from home the night before their niece's wedding.
When fate brings the trio together, Mim doesn’t think twice before offering to drive the affable older couple home. It’s not like she has anywhere else to be. But as the car pulls into the picturesque village of Littlemead, Mim has no idea how her life is about to change…
An uplifting story of found family and true love perfect for fans of Fern Britton and Veronica Henry.
After being made homeless and jobless in one fell swoop, Miranda Brown is resigned to spending another cold December night in her car, that is, until she comes to the rescue of Bill and Bea Howard who are stranded in Lancashire. Without any thought, Miranda offers to drive the Howard’s back to their home in Devon but it’s only when they all arrive at Venhallow Hall that Miranda realises that the life of this wealthy couple couldn’t be any more different from hers.
What then follows is a really lovely story about new beginnings, and of finding out that the love, and support, of good friends more than makes up for the loss of a family. And as Mim, as she is known, becomes closer to this rather special family, so she begins to develop in ways that she could never have imagined back on that cold December night, in Lancashire, when first she rescued, Bill and Bea Howard.
I’m a great believer that a book sometimes comes along at just the right time and such is the case with this lovely story. In this time of the easing of lockdown number three when it’s still something of a dream to travel, I have been thoroughly engrossed in Mim’s story as she discovers the beautiful Devon coast. The author definitely brings to life the rugged Jurassic coastline with its spectacular beaches and stunning hidden coves. However, I think that it is the joyful ease of just being able to let a story wash over you with the simple pleasure of reading a real treasure of a book, with gorgeous characters who slip comfortably into your heart.
Perfectly formed with everything you need for a gentle, romantic read, Finding Home is every bit as good as I knew it would be from this talented, and rather special, storyteller.
