Join Mahsuda Snaith talking about her newly-published second novel How to Find Home; the story of a homeless woman who goes on a Wizard of Oz style adventure from Nottingham to Skegness.
Molly has lived on the streets for nearly a decade and
when a new acquaintance invites her on a journey across the country, she
decides to go along. He is searching for
treasure while she is searching for hope.
At every stop on their unusual quest, Molly senses something close
behind her: the footsteps of an old enemy and the memories of a life she has
tried to erase. And yet she must find the courage to continue if she’s ever
going to discover a place that really feels like home.
