A BIT OF LIGHT by Rebecca Callard
I love that people might be thinking you’re my mum. You could be my mum.
Ella, at forty, is moving into her dad’s spare room with a futon and not much else. Desperately grieving the separation from her children, she meets Neil, a profound and disparate teenager who refuses to see Ella the way she sees herself and offers her the hope she thinks is lost.
