About the book

Tilly was a bright, outgoing little girl who loved fizzy drinks, fish fingers and Catholic churches. But what she loved best of all was living in Brighton in Queenie Malone’s magnificent Paradise Hotel. Tilly was heartbroken when her mother sent her away from the only home she’d ever loved with little explanation and no warning. Now an adult, Tilda returns to Brighton after her mother dies and, with the help of her beloved Queenie, sets about unravelling the mystery of her childhood exile – only to discover her mother was not the woman she thought she knew . . .
