One forgotten discovery will change three women’s lives for ever…

Robin hasn’t been home for decades. After running away to London, she never expected to see her cantankerous mother, Faye, again. But when Faye has a fall, the two women are thrown together once more.

The years apart have not made their hearts grow fonder and the ground between them is unsteady. Then Robin finds an unopened scroll – the last of the treasure hunts her much-missed father used to take them on every Sunday. A hunt he believed might change everything.

Yet, not even this gift from her beloved father can smooth the way until Robin’s daughter, Amber, arrives to meet her grandmother for the first time. Amber is determined that the decades-old mystery be solved.

Can a 30-year-old treasure hunt really ‘change everything’?


In a departure from the romances we all know and love from Samantha Tonge, Under One Roof brings us something slightly different. Definitely leaning more towards women’s fiction than romance, this is an absolutely brilliant book that will have you turning the page to see what happens next.

I loved the complex characters and particularly the exploration of difficult family dynamics. It was all handled sensitively thanks to Sam’s excellent writing, and watching the characters grow was a real pleasure. The 80s nostalgia was a fun bonus too!

I can’t wait to read Sam’s next book and see where she takes us next!
