Description

What if a secret in your past is the key to healing a broken family's heart?

When a car crash during a blizzard leaves a woman stranded in the New England countryside with no memory, she's taken in by Vincent, a banker whose adorable six-year-old daughter, Jadie, has cystic fibrosis and hasn't spoken since her sister died and her mother disappeared two years ago. But when this stranger arrives, calling herself Kate, Jadie suddenly begins speaking again--claiming that she can talk to her sister's ghost and that Kate is an angel sent to help them. As Kate struggles with startling flashbacks to a past life that doesn't seem to be her own, powerful questions arise: What happened to Jadie's mother? What secrets is Vincent hiding? Why has Jadie been silent for so long?

Finding Home is an involving and heartfelt drama about a stranger helping a complicated family to heal--and how the most unexpected moments in life are the ones that lead us home.


About the Author

Melanie Rose was an avid reader from an early age and found herself looking at the world around her and wondering "What if?" She began writing as a teenager, progressing to short stories and articles for magazines and newspapers. She trained as a nursery nurse and later became a play therapist in the children's ward at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, continuing to write in her spare time. Her first novel was voted one of the favorite reads of the year by listeners of BBC Radio 4's Open Book program. She now lives in Surrey with her husband and four sons, who, along with many of the children she has cared for, provide much inspiration for her books.
