"A moving, sensitively written novel by a writer who has a magical way with words. The main characters are beautifully drawn and so real that the reader cannot help but care deeply about them." (Maureen Lee)
"Authentic and intensely heartfelt, Lacey's House tells the story of two women who differ in age, experience, and sensibility but who are drawn together by a shared experience of loss. There is something in this novel for every woman." (Ruth Dugdall)
The heartwrenching but warm and touching story of an unusual friendship between a young woman who has recently lost her baby and the "mad" old woman living in the house next door. Whilst I found it lacked action and dragged a bit in some parts, it kept me engaged through the tragedy and heartbreak hidden between the lines - so so very sad. Prepare to be touched.
