Missing You Already

‘Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions that will have you reaching for the Kleenex. A fantastic read’ RTÉ Guide

At a remote railway station in Norfolk, Kitty Fulton runs the ticket office. Nothing gives her more pleasure than to reunite lost possessions with their rightful owners, but it is an experience that remains elusive in her own world. With each passing day her mother’s Alzheimer’s pulls them further and further apart, then a series of extraordinary events challenges Kitty’s notions of duty and fidelity. In struggling to find the answers, she embarks on a journey that questions the importance of life and the way we must all live…
