A gripping and heartfelt story about overcoming the past and finding where you belong.
Anna Wilson travels the world as a professional housesitter – stepping into other people’s lives – caring for their homes, pets and sometimes even neighbours. Living vicariously.
But all Anna has ever really wanted is a home of her own – a proper one, filled with family and love and happy memories. If only she knew where to start.
Growing up in foster care, she always envied her friends their secure and carefree lives, their certainty and confidence. And, while those same friends may have become her family of choice, Anna is still stuck in that nomadic cycle, looking for answers, trying to find the courage to put down roots and find a place to call home.
Anna’s job is being a professional housesitter, she travels all around the world and not only looks after people’s houses but their pets and neighbours too. It was an interesting plot line as I haven’t read too many books about a house sitter but it seems an interesting job. As the story unfolds we see why Anna does this job and it is really heart felt. She meets some unique characters along the way too. I just want to keep reading about the different homes she visits. I felt as though this book touched my heart. I now want to read more of Penny’s books as I feel as though I have missed out on her awesome writing.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you to Simon & Schuster and Netgalley for sending me a copy.
