The Family Holiday

Escape to the Cotswolds for a heartwarming story of love and family




A stunning new novel from the Number One bestseller about the joys and heartbreaks of reuniting a divided family

Charlie is determined to celebrate his eightieth birthday surrounded by family. The trouble is that ever since he lost his wife - the true north of the Chamberlain family - his children's differences have pulled them apart.

His daughter Laura is divorced and struggling. And with her teenage son accused of a crime by his girlfriend's parents, she doesn't know which crisis to deal with first. Charlie's sons couldn't be in more different positions: Scott has recently married, acquiring two stepdaughters and breaking out of his 'confirmed bachelor' ways. Nick is still reeling from losing his wife in a tragic accident, and coping alone with their three young children.

Now, brought together for Charlie's birthday and two weeks away from the world, the family must untangle what divides them and discover, at last, what binds them all together . . .
