A heart-warming standalone novel from bestseller Rebecca Shaw about the important of family and being there for one another. 12 Springs Gardens is a quiet house. Myra and Graham Butler lead the kind of lives where everything is neat, tidy and predictable. That is until they're named guardians to their young nephews, two boys who never knew their mother and now have lost their father. Life will never be same again, for any of them . . .Myra makes it clear she doesn't want the responsibility. A terrible loss early in their marriage meant Myra decided there and then that she wouldn't open her heart again, and has turned her back on friends and family since. Now she has two children and a rabbit turning her house - and her heart - upside down.Graham is determined to do his best - but can you learn to be a parent overnight? School, parties, squabbles and secrets are all a mystery to him - and for once he has to stand up to Myra and challenge the safe little rules that have kept them hemmed in for so long. As Myra and Graham realise there's no textbook that will teach you how to be a family, it will take danger, more heartbreak and a small dog for them all to realise that sometimes love is enough, even if you don't know what you're doing. But they're going to need help to muddle through. Sometimes, it takes a village . . .
