Summer in the City

An uplifting and heart-warming story to brighten your summer




The story of a disillusioned woman who finally starts to see the world around her by describing it to her blind father. Written in Fiona's refreshingly uplifting style and with a genuine warmth.

If you like Jill Mansell, Maeve Haran and Katie Fforde, you will love SUMMER IN THE CITY, a romantic and uplifting story of a father and daughter exploring the world around them for the first time in years.

Prue is not someone you would notice willingly. She likes to keep herself to herself and fade into the background. If it were not for the birthmark on her left cheek, she might actually succeed at becoming invisible.

She spends all of her time with her blind father, Vince. Together, they sit in silence and ignore the vibrant city just on their doorstep. Life is as good as what's on TV. That is, until something forces them both to go outside and see what they have been missing. For Vince, that means discovering how to see the world without his sight. For Prue, that means finding the courage to finally love and be loved in return.

A story about family, friendship and facing your fears head on, this is a heart-warming story that will stay with you long after you have finished the last page.
