Description of this Book

You can't trust your future until you uncover your past... Dragonfly Farm has been a home and a haven for generations of Melchiors - arch rivals to the Culbones, the wealthy family who live the other side of the valley. Nestled amidst soft, rolling apple orchards in the depths of the Somerset countryside, life there is dictated by the seasons and cider-making. The farm is idyllic and everyone falls under its spell. But its thick stone walls hold many secrets, and this summer everything will change for the family living there... Laden with heady summertime atmosphere, A Home from Home is full of family drama and gorgeous scenes you wish you could step into: the very best of Veronica Henry's storytelling on her biggest ever canvas - crossing three generations of one family. Praise for Veronica Henry: 'Wise, insightful, beautifully written' Milly Johnson 'An utter delight' Jill Mansell 'Truly blissful escapism' Lucy Diamond
