A heartwarming tale of love, family and acceptance, The Love Noteis a simply gorgeous read...

In their townhouse in Richmond, Blue and her family are as happy and as close as can be - well, on the surface at least.

But with the arrival of a young, destitute woman hoping to escape her abusive husband, they must finally confront the rifts that keep them apart. When they welcome Delphine into their home - and their hearts - they think it's for her benefit only. But what they don't realise is that she will bring them together in ways they never thought possible.
