Lola's keeping a secret from her past - it's the reason she escaped to the other side of the world . . . but when she travels back to where it all began, will she decide to tell the truth and face her fears?

'Monica McInerney is at the very top of her game. Treat yourself immediately!' Patricia Scanlan

'I always thought memories were unchangeable. Set in stone, shaped by the years. But there are always others too, ones you haven't let yourself remember . . .'

The wilful and eccentric Lola Quinlan is off on the trip of a lifetime, taking her beloved granddaughter and great-granddaughter with her. More than sixty years after emigrating to Australia, she's keeping a secret promise to return to her Irish homeland.

Lola has always been her family's port in a storm, but she's hiding the hurtful reason she left Kildare as a young woman. Lola's walk down memory lane will force her to confront her bittersweet past - and discover that the truth can indeed set you free . . .

'The twists and turns will intrigue you, make you laugh, pull at your heartstrings, but Lola will definitely make you cry. The sort of feel-good read you long to get back to' Hilary Boyd

'Heart-warming . . . a lovely read' Hello!
