“There had been whoops from her family when they broke the news of the engagement.”
The Book Fairies have been sharing the love today with copies of The House That Made Us by Alice Cavanagh! Who will be lucky enough to spot one today?
About the book:
One Day meets Up: The House That Made Us is a love story – and a life story told through a series of photographs and inspired by a true story.
When Mac and Marie marry and find a home of their own, Mac takes a snap of them outside their newbuild bungalow the garden bare and the paint on the front door still wet. It becomes a tradition, this snap, and slowly the photographs build into an album of a fifty-year relationship. Every year they take a photo and though things change around them – the garden matures, the fashions change, they grow older – the one constant is their love.
Every year, come rain, come shine, from the Seventies through the decades, every photo tells the story of their love. But life never travels the path you expect it to, though they know that a life with love is a life lived to the full.
Now, in the present day, the photo album belongs to someone who doesn’t know the people in its pages. As they watch the lives from the past unfold, will the truth of their love story be told..?
A heart-breaking story about life and love for readers who love Holly Miller, Jojo Moyes and Hazel Prior.
