I Won't Be Home For Christmas: A sparkling festive treat from the author of The Light in the Hallway Amanda Prowse

An irresistible festive treat from million-copy bestseller Amanda Prowse.

Amanda Prowse is the author of The Light in the Hallway and the no.1 bestsellers Perfect Daughter, My Husband's Wife and What Have I Done?

While her free-spirited daughter travels the world, Vivienne prepares for a lonely Christmas in Bristol, with her best friend Ellen and her ancient dog Bob.

Then a letter arrives that changes everything. Vivienne's daughter is getting married in New Zealand, and she wants her mum and Ellen by her side.
