Full Product Description
- Feel like you've lost what home means?
- You aren't alone, as Jo Swinney tells her story of finding where to belong
- Filled with thought and reflections, Home is a moving and illuminating book for those feeling lost.
'Home is where the heart is,' we say. But cheap catchphrases apart, in a world where more people move home more often than ever before, and many families end up spread across countries or around the world, what does it mean to speak of home - and where can we find true belonging?
Born in the UK, growing up in Portugal, studying in Canada and now living back in the UK, Jo Swinney's peripatetic life has brought her face to face with the challenges of leaving people and places behind, and landing somewhere new every few years needing to find a way to put down fresh roots.
Weaving her own story into an enticing exploration of the idea of home, Jo Swinney helps us face up to the challenges that can seem so hard to face when friends and family live far away, when the place we live just doesn't seem like it could ever be home, or when the home we know ceases to satisfy. Together, she argues, we can start to piece together a fuller picture of what it might mean to find a true home, somewhere we can really belong.
