Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Three grown up kids still all going home for Christmas only this one looks like it may spell the beginning of their separation. Gran has gone off to Australia with a man! She has always been there and her daughter, Holly, is finding her absence hard to cope with, as indeed is her eldest granddaughter. Sadly the farm is showing signs of strain. The grandson, Joey, has had a terrible accident but his insurance money may help them sort things out. The ending comes as quite a surprise in this gentle, heartfelt tale of a close knit family pulling together.

Synopsis

Driving Home for Christmas by Emma Hannigan

Christmas at Huntersbrook House has always been a family tradition - log fires, long walks through the snowy fields and evenings spent in the local pub. And this year the three grown-up Craig children are looking forward to the holidays more than ever. Pippa to escape her partying lifestyle and mounting debts in Dublin; Joey the demands of his gorgeous girlfriend who seems intent on coming between him and his family; and Lainey to forget about her controlling ex and his recent engagement to another woman. But with the family livery yard in financial trouble, this Christmas could be the Craig family's last at Huntersbrook as they face the prospect of selling the ancestral house. As the holiday season gets underway, the family need to come up with a way to save their home, and face the problems they've been running away from in Dublin. And what better place to figure things out than around the fire at Huntersbrook House.
