Synopsis

A uniquely heart-wrenching and life-affirming novel for fathers and daughters everywhere. Alice has just returned to London from months of travelling abroad. She is late to hear the news that her father is dying, and returns to the family home only just in time to say goodbye. Daniel hasn't had a roof over his head for almost thirty years, but to him the city of London feels like home in a way that no bricks and mortar ever did. He spends every day searching for his daughter; the daughter he has never met. Until now...This is a unique story of love lost and found, of rootlessness and homecoming and the power of the ties that bind.
