Publisher's Summary

In this festive novella by the author of Christmas at the Vicarage, will Enid follow her heart or her head?

Since the tragic loss of her parents, Enid has lived alone in a coastal cottage in Jersey. But this year someone new has come into her life: Fred, who truly gets her, and who knows how to make her happy. The only problem is that Enid has Asperger’s and doesn’t like to leave her comfort zone - and Fred lives in Australia.

Like Enid, Fred has survived heartbreak and is searching for a way to start again. Could a stranger on the other side of the world really bring new meaning to his life, or is he just setting himself up for another fall?

When Fred invites Enid to Australia for Christmas, her vivacious sister Bess begs her to take a risk for the first time ever. But Enid’s whole life is structured around familiarity. As the festive season approaches, she has a decision to make: play it safe, or embark on a momentous journey into the unknown?

Wonderful holiday treat, in February.

Well done all. The story flowed neatly with no slow or sagging plot. The voices were charming. The presentation of a very real aspect of our daily lives was superb.

I'm so glad to have heard this lovely book.

A Great Way to Start Holiday Reading

With its surprising plot twists, this book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it. The three narrators did an excellent job of portraying Enid, Bess, and Fred as they told the story from each of their points of view. I can’t think of a better way to start your holiday reading this year.

A different kind of Christmas story

I really enjoyed this one. Loved the choice of main characters, one of which has Asperger's - which isn't very common in books I don't think. The setting was also a bit different to the norm. You really rooted for the characters, and overall it just left you feeling happy and jolly. Perfect for the Christmas season.
