Ellie and the Harp-Maker

Meet Ellie. She’s perfectly happy living a quiet life with her husband, Clive. (Well, she does sometimes wonder about the way he talks to her, and about all the things she hasn’t achieved yet. But, she’s happy enough.) Meet Dan. He’s definitely content – content with his predictable, ordered existence, making harps in his isolated barn on Exmoor. Content being on his own, far away from other people and – crucially – far away from any risk of surprises. What Ellie and Dan don’t know yet, is that a chance encounter is about to change all of this.

'It's a fresh and heart-warming tale and the perfect feel-good read' Reader review

Sometimes it takes a chance encounter to discover what happiness really is . . .

Meet Dan: Dan needs peace and order. He likes perfectly triangular sandwiches, the way coffee smells of sunshine and harvest, and the sound of birdsong that drifts into his harp-making workshop on Exmoor. His life is quiet, predictable, and safe from any danger of surprises.

Meet Ellie: Ellie is a dreamer. But recently Ellie has stopped dreaming and her world has become very small. Her days are spent keeping a perfect home for her husband, Clive, and trying to keep him happy.

When Ellie stumbles across Dan's workshop, they cannot imagine that their lives are about to change forever...
