Finding Home

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Louise and Rebecca, good friends since their BBC days in Belfast, work for a film company and are scouring the south of England for a suitable location to shoot a movie about Elizabeth I. As they stumble across Wooldene House, they meet Diana and Henry, who own the property.

Diana, widowed, feels her life is slowly crumbling along with the house, and yearns for new romance. Diana spends her time looking after their aunt Lucy who, as she senses time is running out, begins to share the startling secrets in her past.

And Henry, retired from the Army after a stint in Northern Ireland, is increasingly drawn to Louise – but their shared history, which places them on opposite sides of the troubles, threatens them both . . .

Critics Review

  • A good story well told

  • Finding Home rewards every second the reader spends with it. A creator of wonderfully memorable characters, even McAuley’s secondary creations are complex, well realised and morally interesting figures. McAuley has a Maeve Binchy-like capacity to give her characters quirks and turns of phrase that make them seem instantly true-to-life and compellling
