Summary

Some friendships are meant to be....

A story about family, friendship, and belonging from best-selling author Sarah Lean.

Hope lives with her artist mum in the Pyrenees. It's always been just the two of them...until Frank - a free-spirited traveller - arrives with his donkey, Harry.

Hope and Frank form a close bond, so it's hard for both of them when Frank decides it's time to move on. Hope questions what she is to Frank. He's not her dad, but he was more than just her mum's boyfriend. Except there's no name for that kind of pair....

Hope promises to look after Harry, and slowly another special pair is made - one that makes Hope realise that some friendships become part of you, and even when someone is far away they are always near to your heart.

BEAUTIFUL BELIEVABLE STORY

This book has everything I value in life. Beauty, kindness, a bit of pathos that a child can relae to , and los of realism - and my 12 year old added "and adventure" What a lovely writer and this book is somehow one of my favourites
