A lonely single father gets an unexpected second chance at love in the heart-warming new novel from the bestselling author of The Library of Lost and Found.
Only his daughter Poppy knows that behind his prickly exterior, Mitchell Fisher is deeply lonely. He may have sworn off romance, relishing his job cutting off the padlocks that couples fasten to his hometown's famous 'love story' bridge... but underneath it all, he's still grieving the loss of Poppy's mum.
Then one hot summer's day, everything changes when Mitchell bravely rescues a woman who falls from the bridge into the river. He's surprised to feel an unexpected connection to her, but then she disappears. Desperate to find the mysterious woman, Mitchell teams up with her spirited sister Liza to see if she's left any clues behind. There's just one - a secret message on the padlock she left on love story bridge...
Brimming with Phaedra Patrick's signature charm and a sparkling cast of characters, The Secrets of Sunshine follows one man's journey to unlock his heart and discover new beginnings in the unlikeliest places.
