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. Is it ever too late to change your mind, and welcome someone from your past into your present?
Born in Dublin, Maria Duffy knew from an early age that she loved writing, but it never occurred to her that she could pursue the craft as a career. Instead, she began working at a bank after completing a business course. Maria went on to have four children with husband Paddy and became a stay-at-home mum. She had never stopped writing and when her youngest started school, she decided to dust off the book she'd once started. When she began to write again she knew it was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Any Dream Will Do, her first novel, was published in 2011, soon followed by Irish bestsellers The Terrace and The Letter.
