“Tondeur's brand of homespun gothic and seaside camp is a memorable one.”

Emma Hagestadt, Independent

Rachel, Alex, Billy and Jemima: four women whose lives are changed for ever by the Haven, a home for unmarried mothers. Theirs are tales of sadness and heartbreaking loss, but also of discovery: of intense and magical friendships, chocolate sponges, unexpected kisses and the secret world of the Memory Lane café. When Erica, a young woman just out of prison, begins to stir up the past, she discovers that the Haven’s story is far from over.
