Publisher's Summary

A compelling and heartwarming set of four short stories by Mary Grand.

"The New Arrival"

Rachel has moved to the Isle of Wight determined to become invisible. Hiding a shameful secret, she cultivates a cold polite smile as effective as an electric fence. However, unexpectedly, into her life comes a loving, crazy, individual: Lottie the cocker spaniel. Everything is about to change.

"Belonging"

Megan works in a theatre for the deaf. She is deaf. Her language is British Sign Language. One evening, she meets John, who is hearing, and two worlds collide. This is the story of the struggles, joys, and tears of their remarkable relationship.

"Catching the Light"

Erin thinks she has found her fairytale prince. However, the honeymoon in a remote cottage in Wales shatters the dream. For the first time in her life, Erin discovers the mystical world of fairies.

"The Outing"

This was to be the most important day of Kay's life. However, her mission to be free from years of guilt reveals so much more than she could possibly imagine.

Mary Grand's writing has been compared to Kate Atkinson, Adele Parks, Maeve Binchy, and Diane Chamberlain, amongst popular contemporary women's authors.

An easy listen.
