‘Norwich’s fictional Nightingale Square is the setting for another feelgood novel by Heidi Swain’ Norfolk Magazine 

‘Heidi Swain weaves a life-affirming story about the power of community’ Woman’s Own 

‘A charming read full of summer warmth’ My Weekly

‘This is the fourth in Heidi Swain’s Nightingale Square series but you don’t need to read the first three books to enjoy this charming story. It’s unexpectedly refreshing to read a novel partly set in a care home where we meet the mischievous, delightfully entertaining residents in their 80s who Beth looks after’ Daily Express and Daily Mirror

Join Heidi Swain back in Nightingale Square for a sunshine and celebration filled summer…

Beth loves her job working in a care home, looking after its elderly residents, but she doesn’t love the cramped and dirty house-share she currently lives in. So, when she gets the opportunity to move to Nightingale Square, sharing a house with the lovely Eli, she jumps at the chance.

The community at Nightingale Square welcomes Beth with open arms, and when she needs help to organise a fundraiser for the care home they rally round. Then she discovers The Arches, a local creative arts centre, has closed and the venture to replace it needs their help too – but this opens old wounds and past secrets for Beth.

Music was always an important part of her life, but now she has closed the door on all that. Will her friends at the care home and the people of Nightingale Square help her find a way to learn to love it once more…?
