Make yourself at home in Hummingbird House with this heartwarming new novella.
In 1968, the summer of love seems long gone. Hummingbird House has a new batch of residents, and Betty is settled in a comfortable – though unexpected – form of domestic bliss. Life may not have worked out as planned, but she is determined to make the best of it.
Yet as the months go on, she realises she still has much to learn. With one tenant missing and another threatening to sweep her off her feet, she begins to worry that her happy home could fall around her once more.
In 2022, Betty has established a comfortable routine. She weeds the front yard. Listens to the radio. Makes cake. At the age of 83, she knows what – and who – she likes, plus just how much she can manage before her arthritis begins to complain.
She lives by simple rules gleaned from hard-learnt lessons:
Keep an open mind and a well-stocked pantry
Sometimes meddling is not such a bad thing
But when an old friend finally makes an overdue appearance, those guidelines start to take on a new meaning.
Just how much should we do for absent friends? And when is it right to take a chance on love?
Searching for Sandra follows the lives of the characters in books one and two of the Hummingbird House series – showing what happens next and the unexpected impact of friendships and neighbourly love.
