From the best-selling author of The Keeper of Lost Things and The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes - a novel of mothers and daughters, families and secrets and the astonishing power of friendship.
Tilly was a bright, outgoing little girl who liked playing with ghosts and matches.
She loved fizzy drinks, swear words, fish fingers and Catholic churches, but most of all she loved living in Brighton in Queenie Malone's magnificent Paradise Hotel, with its endearing and loving family of misfits - staff and guests alike.
But Tilly's childhood was shattered when her mother sent her away from the only home she'd ever loved to boarding school with little explanation and no warning.
Now, Tilda has grown into an independent woman still damaged by her mother's unaccountable cruelty. Wary of people, her only friend is her dog, Eli. But when her mother dies, Tilda goes back to Brighton and, with the help of her beloved Queenie, sets about unravelling the mystery of her exile from The Paradise Hotel and discovers that her mother was not the woman she thought she knew at all....
Mothers and daughters...their story can be complicated...it can also turn out to have a happy ending.
"Hogan's work is filled with hope and the power of friendship." (Evening Standard)
"Hogan writes welcoming prose that makes reading a joy." (Stylist)
"The Up-Lit Queen." (Sunday Post)

Everything is in the title ! I was a delightful reading. The story is well constructed and you want to know everything about the characters. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Riveted until the very end
First about the book. Ruth Hogan manahed to keep me hooked and surprised right up to the very last chapter. She has managed to tell a multi-faceted story, that addresses complex mental health and family issues, through an innocent young girl and her awkward, answer seeking older self.
It is beautifully written with unexpected twists and turns along the way keeping me so enthralled that I had trouble getting out of my car when I reached my destination! (Book listened to on Audible I wasn't reading and driving!)
The book was well narrated with Jane Collingwood managing to give each character their own personality that fitted perfectly with the story being told.
I can't recommend this book enough and now look forward to receiving my paper copy and its definitely a keeper for my bookshelf.

Whimsical and endearing
This was a wonderful story, that captured my imagination. I was so sad when it was finished, and could easily listen to it right away again. Outstanding narration!
