When her daughter finally starts asking questions about her father, Becky goes in search of answers – but nothing could prepare her for what she discovers… A heartfelt, uplifting story of second chances and new beginnings.
Becky is used to her young daughter asking tricky questions, but lately Lilly has become fascinated by one in particular – why she doesn’t have a father. And Becky realises that it’s not a subject she can ignore for much longer.
What Becky remembers about Lilly’s dad would fit on a Post-it: his name is Dennis, he’s a successful property developer – and he doesn’t know he has a daughter. And when she finally locates him, he’s not at all what she expected.
Dennis might not be everyone’s idea of the perfect dad. But as Becky gets to know him, she begins to wonder if she was wrong not to let him into Lilly’s life before now. And she can’t help but think about her own family, the people she left far behind.
