Description

The inhabitants of quiet, tree-lined Mulberry Lane take a keen interest in the comings and goings of their neighbours. When number fifteen comes onto the market they are naturally intrigued to see a good-looking man being shown the property, and they hope to find a pleasant, quiet family moving in. But they are to be sadly disappointed - the house is to be a hostel for young offenders. Feelings run high. Opinions are divided - some fearing that they will be murdered in their beds, others wanting to welcome these youths into their community. However friendly the newcomers may be, there are others in Mulberry Lane who are determined to scupper the scheme at all costs...show more

Back cover copy

The inhabitants of quiet, tree-lined Mulberry Lane take a keen interest in the comings and goings of their neighbours. And when number fifteen comes onto the market the unbelievable news that the house is to be a hostel for young offenders causes feelings to run high. Some fear that they will be murdered in their beds by a 'gang of ex-convicts', while others want to welcome these youths into the neighbourhood. Brian, the warden of the hostel, faces an uphill struggle to persuade his new neighbours to accept the scheme. He wants to become a part of the community - and in particular, to get to know Karen, the young mother struggling to bring up her two young children on her own. But however friendly Karen may be, there are others in Mulberry Lane who are determined to scupper the scheme at all costs... A delightful new novel from the well-loved, bestselling author of Ruth Appleby, Cara's Land, The Mountain, Portrait of Chloe, Spring Music, Midsummer Meeting and The Birthday Party.show more
