A lost girl shows a mother and her daughter their way home. Keep Me Safe is the much anticipated new novel from the author loved by over a million readers, Daniela Sacerdoti. Perfect for all fans of Nicholas Sparks and Cecelia Ahern. ‘Beautifully written… I could almost hear the sea and the wind. A great book’ Lesley Pearse
When Anna’s partner walks away from their relationship, she is shattered. But it is her little girl Ava who takes it hardest of all. The six year old falls silent for three days. When she does speak, her words are troubling. Ava wants to go home. To a place called Seal. To her other mother.
Anna knows to unravel the mystery she must find Seal and take Ava there. She hopes this tiny island will unlock her daughter’s memories. But could it also offer a new life… and unexpected love… for Anna too?
Like any woman in this situation, Anna wants to do the best by her daughter. She is the typical protective lioness. After contemplation, she goes to Seal and finds that her hotel reservation is nowhere to be seen however the kind son of an Inn owner invites them to stay at his mother’s place.
Ava tells Anna things about places in Seal that she could not possibly know but, like most mothers, indulges the child and follows her to discover each thing actually does exist.
They get to know the family they are staying with and for the first time in her life, Anna feels like she has a real family. As a nurse she finds herself stumbling upon a job and decides to stay on in Seal a little longer however things are not plain sailing.
This is a truly beautiful story. It shows how a mother would do anything for their child, how she discovers things about herself along the way and is absolutely one of the most wonderful stories I have read so far this year!
