ERICA JAMES Untitled

From Erica James, bestselling author of The Dandelion Years and Song of the Skylark, comes an enchanting tale of life, loss and love during wartime.

The Devereux family have not been close for what feels like the longest time. Jack, who after the death of his wife played the absent father to his children, has reached an age where he begins to reflect on the mistakes he’s made – and he’s made quite a few. When he suddenly falls ill, his children are called back to Island House, the idyllic place of their childhoods. According to his wishes, they must spend seven days together in the house or risk being written out of his will entirely.

Erica James is a Sunday Times Top 10 betselling author. With an insatiable appetite for other people’s business, Erica James will readily strike up conversation with strangers in the hope of unearthing a useful gem for her writing.
