The House of Memories




An exquisitely moving family story about forgiveness and learning to love again, from one of Australia's most-loved authors

Sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are those that matter most.
Following a family tragedy, Ella O'Hanlon flees home in an attempt to escape her grief, leaving behind the two people she blames for her loss: Aidan, the love of her life, and Jess, her spoilt half-sister.

In London Ella is taken in by her beloved uncle Lucas, whose extraordinary house holds many wonderful memories for her. Lucas helps Ella to see that she is not the only one still hurting, and that forgiveness can be the greatest healer in a family and in a marriage.

An exquisitely moving and life-affirming novel by one of Australia’s favourite authors.
