Description

'It's a gem of a book. It made me wish Hester and Harriet were my neighbours.' Write Note Reviews..'A great read...the sisters are wonderful characters filled with life.' Good Reading..When widowed sisters, Hester and Harriet, move in together, the only blights on their comfortable landscape are their crushingly boring cousins who are determined that the sisters will never want for company. Including Christmas Day...On their reluctant drive over to Christmas dinner, the sisters come across a young girl, hiding with her baby in a disused bus shelter. Seizing upon the perfect excuse for returning to their own warm hearth, Hester and Harriet insist on bringing Daria and Milo home with them...But with the knock at their front door the next day by a sinister stranger looking for a girl with a baby, followed quickly by their cousins' churlish fifteen-year-old son, Ben, who also appears to be seeking sanctuary, Hester and Harriet's carefully crafted peace and quiet quickly begins to fall apart...
