It takes a village…
Cloverdale is known for its winding roads, undulating hills and colourful cottages, and more recently, its Library of Things. Need a ladder, a hedge trimmer or a waffle-maker? You can borrow it from the Library of Things.
Single dad Adam is doing a good job of raising his daughter, Zoe, whilst burying his past and moving forwards. When he joins the Library of Things and agrees to run a mending workshop, new friendships start to blossom.
Jennifer is a volunteer at the Library of Things. When her younger sister Isla moves back to Cloverdale after their mother dies, Jennifer finds herself wondering whether Isla is hiding something.
And when Adam’s daughter Zoe makes a startling discovery, it’s time for the people at the Library of Things to pull together and help one family with its biggest challenge of all.
This is a novel with community at its heart. It’s about the kindness we can find when we least expect it and the bonds we can form when we’re not even looking.
