Summary

The wonderful new novel from the acclaimed author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton.

One summer. One house. One family learning to love again.

Cate Morris and her son, Leo, are homeless, adrift. They’ve packed up the boxes from their London home, said good-bye to friends and colleagues and now they are on their way to Hatters Museum of the Wide Wide World - to stay just for the summer. Cate doesn’t want to be there, in Richard’s family home, without Richard to guide her anymore. And she knows for sure that Araminta, the retainer of the collection of dusty objects and stuffed animals, has taken against them. But they have nowhere else to go. They have to make the best of it.

But Richard hasn’t told Cate the truth about his family’s history. And something about the house starts to work its way under her skin.

Can she really walk away, once she knows the truth?

Moving and magical

Terrific second novel from a talented and engaging writer. With a cast of believable, sympathetic and well drawn characters, Where We Belong is sad, hilarious and witty.
