Rowan Hill means many things to many people, but to Ellie Hesketh it represents new beginnings. Putting her life back together after a break-up is going to take time, but the crumbling country estate-as much in need of TLC as she is-seems the perfect place to do it. But Ellie is not the only person for whom Rowan Hill is a refuge. There's Will, damaged and complicated, whose secrets almost nobody knows. And Finn, his brother, who's finally decided to stop running from his own past. As Ellie is drawn further into saving the estate, she can't help but try saving the brothers too-and she's sure she knows just how to go about it. The trouble is, she's been accused of meddling before. By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this story of friendship, forgiveness and unexpected romance reveals the lies we tell to hide dark secrets-and what can happen when we let in a little light.

"Narrator Eve Webster lays bare the frustrations and joys she encounters as the mother of a disabled child. White's first child, Louis, was born prematurely after receiving incompetent prenatal care. It takes two years for a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. Some service providers are maddeningly idiotic. A shoe clerk refuses to sell them a pair of shoes because Louis can't walk so she can't check the fit, and Webster effectively voices White's disbelief and anger. Other moments are joyful and hilarious--when Louis unexpectedly walks, he swears a blue streak at the same time. Webster perfectly expresses the lightness and gratitude of those moments. Her British accent is charming, and her tone is warm. But you can feel the exhaustion experienced by families with monumental challenges but a dearth of services available.
