The White Hare Summary

The White Hare by Jane Johnson

In a Cornish valley steeped in legend lies an abandoned house where Edens may be lost, found and remade... The house at White Cove comes with a reputation. Once the venue for glittering parties, it has lain neglected since the war, which is why Mila and her mother Magda acquire it so cheaply in the summer of 1954. While Magda plans to restore the house to its former glory, Mila just wants a happy home for her little girl, Janey. Locals say this valley is home to a white hare; to some it's an ill omen, to others a blessing. Feeling fragile and broken-hearted, Mila is in need of as many blessings as she can get. But will this place provide the fresh start she so desperately needs? 'This book does not hesitate to evoke a sense of wonder' Robin Hobb 'Mythic, witchy... sings of an earth alive with power' Jackie Morris 'A brilliant novel of love, loss, forgiveness, and healing' Liz Fenwick
