Sometimes the people who have the power to change your life are the ones who have been there all along…
Like stars in the dark skies above the tiny island where she grew up, freckles scatter Allegra Bird’s arms, a link to her beloved father. She’s never known her mother.
In a quest to find the one thing she’s missing she begins a bold new life in Dublin. But she’s left a lot behind.
So when a stranger tells her she’s the sum of five people – the five people she spends the most time with – she’s suddenly no longer seeking one person. She’s looking for five.
And the truth lies in unexpected places…
Life-affirming, beautiful and thought-provoking, Freckles is an unforgettable novel of five people, five chances and one woman’s search for happiness.
