The Hidden Cottage

The Hidden Cottage

Sunday Times bestseller Erica James shows her faultless blend of humour and emotion in this moving tale of family love and sacrifice.

Mia Channing appears to have an enviable life: a beautiful home, a happy marriage, a job she enjoys and three grown-up children to whom she’s devoted. But appearances can be deceptive…

When the family gathers for her son’s thirtieth birthday, he brings with him his latest girlfriend, who, to their surprise, has a nine-year-old daughter. Then, before the birthday cake has even been cut, Mia’s youngest daughter Daisy has seized the opportunity to drop a bombshell. It’s an evening that marks a turning point in all their lives, when old resentments and regrets surface and the carefully ordered world Mia has created begins to unravel.

Reviews

I raced to the end of this.
DAILY MAIL
A story of family ties, love and loss
GOOD BOOK GUIDE
The Hidden Cottage is a heart-warming, romantic story full of engaging characters, an emotional rollercoaster.
DAILY EXPRESS
Like Maeve Binchy, the characters are identifiable, yet somehow never predictable and always with an element of sympathy ... This novel, telling the story of a perfect family and its imperfect realities, is splendid and just right for an end-of-summer read.
