Some friendships are meant to be… A story about family, friendship and belonging, from bestselling 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 traveler – 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 realize that some friendships become part of you and, even when someone is far away, they are always near to your heart.
Special friendships. Extraordinary animals.
