Somewhere Only We Know

A novel by


Tender and emotional, just absolutely beautiful JOSIE SILVER

Sometimes it takes getting away from it all to truly bring you home . . .

From the Sunday Times bestselling storyteller Cathy Bramley comes an emotional, escapist and uplifting novel about a grieving mother who travels in the footsteps of her teenage daughter from the vineyards of Australia to the beaches of Bali.

Single parent Maggie has always worked hard, juggling a career with raising her beautiful daughter, Bronte. She is shocked when Bronte abandons her dream job at a top London advertising firm, to go travelling. They argue, and before they can reconcile Bronte is tragically killed in a car accident.
Devastated by grief, Maggie is ordered by her boss Anna to take a sabbatical. She discovers Bronte's gap year journal, filled with hopes and dreams for her future travels. Maggie decides to put her life back together by taking on her daughter's gap year. She is reminded of her younger self, the adventurous twenty-two-year-old who fell head over heels for Jackson, a young American she met whilst volunteering, and fell pregnant with Bronte.
The journal takes Maggie to backpackers' paradise Nepal, where she changes the life of vulnerable women in Chitwan, to the Blue Mountains in Australia where she comforts Bronte's grieving boyfriend Harry. She also enjoys a brief romance with Jono, a dashing vineyard owner who restores her confidence. Fate finally reunites them twenty years later in Bali, he too was drawn back to the place and no-one has ever come close to Maggie. As they come to terms with the events of their past and the daughter they shared, together they begin to heal.
