Synopsis

The Thousand Lights Hotel by Emylia Hall

THE THOUSAND LIGHTS HOTEL is the gorgeous new novel from Emylia Hall, author of Richard & Judy Summer Pick THE BOOK OF SUMMERS. Set in idyllic Italy, it's the perfect holiday read, for fans of Louise Douglas and Hannah Richell. When Kit loses her mother in tragic circumstances, she feels drawn to finally connect with the father she has never met. That search brings her to the Thousand Lights Hotel, the perfect holiday escape perched upon a cliff on the island of Elba. Within this idyllic setting a devastating truth is brought to light: shaking the foundations upon which the hotel is built, and shattering the lives of the people within it.

Reviews

'A heartfelt story about identity, family, grief and love, filled with warmth, compassion and a glorious dose of Italian sunshine. Hall's care for her characters leaps off the page and her sense of landscape is beautifully evocative. Mark my words - it will have you booking the next flight to Elba' -- Hannah Beckerman

'A simply gorgeous read by a supremely gifted writer. Just perfect!' -- Debbie Johnson

'I devoured The Thousand Lights Hotel. Vividly written, I savoured every page. Set on the beautiful Italian island of Elba, Hall immerses us in the lives of Valentino, Oliviero and Kit, as they struggle to come to terms with their pasts. Tender, sun-drenched and beautifully written, it's the perfect summer read' -- Lucy Clarke, author of The Sea Sisters
