Sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are those that matter most.

Following a tragic accident, Ella O'Hanlon flees to the other side of the world in an attempt to escape her grief, leaving behind the two people she blames for her loss: Aidan, the love of her life, and Jess, her spoilt half-sister.

In London Ella is taken in by her beloved uncle Lucas, whose extraordinary house holds many wonderful memories for her. Along with other members of the very colourful Fox family, Lucas helps Ella to see that she is not the only one still hurting, and that forgiveness can be the greatest healer in a family and in a marriage.

For anyone who has ever loved and lost, this is an exquisitely moving and life-affirming novel by the internationally bestselling author of Lola's Secret.�
'McInerney has a knack for bringing characters to life; imbuing them with unique voices, perfectly tuned, making them authentically flawed and carving out their losses and gains with a realism that resonates deeply. Full of heart and exquisitely written pain this is one of those novels that will stay with the reader for a long time. Some stories just carry you along with them and make you truly care about the fate of the characters, long after you leave the last page, and The House of Memories is one of those books.' �

  • The house of Memories - Monica McInerney

    By Philip Knott
    A very powerful novel, especially for anyone with children of their own. The novel explores how a family, individually and together, navigates a life shattering event. The use of multiple global settings truly enhances this book and as per usual they are depicted so eloquently by Monica. A great read!

    A very emotional story delivered in the author's typical sensitive, insightful style. I think I cried through most of it. Very hard to put down.
