Heather Lucas lives her life through other people's memories.
Heather doesn't want to remember her childhood, not when her mother's extreme hoarding cast her family life into disarray.
For Heather's mother, every possession was intimately connected to a memory, so when Heather uncovers a secret about her past that could reveal why her mother never let anything go, she knows there's only one place she'll find answers - behind the locked door of her spare room, where the remains of her mother's hoard lie hidden.
As Heather uncovers both objects and memories, will the truth set her free? Or will she discover she's more like her mother than she ever thought possible?
A powerful, uplifting story about love, loss and the things we leave behind, perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and The Keeper of Lost Things.
