Your child asks for her mother.
But she doesn’t mean you.

‘Mysterious.’ ‘Captivating.’ ‘Intriguing.’ Keep Me Safe is a book you will never forget.

Daniela Sacerdoti is adored by over 1 million readers. If you read one book this summer, make it Keep Me Safe.

When Anna’s partner walks away from their relationship, she is shattered. But it is her little girl Ava who takes it hardest of all. The six year old falls silent for three days. When she does speak, her words are troubling. Ava wants to go home. To a place called Seal. To her other mother.

Anna knows to unravel the mystery she must find Seal and take Ava there. She hopes this tiny island will unlock her daughter’s memories. But could it also offer a new life…and unexpected love…for Anna too?

The praise is flooding in for Keep Me Safe. Have you read it yet?

Poignant, full of emotions and concentrates on sensitive topics. One of those rare gems, a book that spoke to my heart and completely drew me into its magical world where I was a listener, an observer, a witness... I can't imagine my life without Daniela's books. They are all beautifully written and magical, and Daniela once again shows her great talent for creating an atmospheric read which is quite an emotional rollercoaster

Katie Fforde
Dani has easily become one of my favourite authors of all time; she has a unique style of writing that sets her aside from other authors of the same genre and the storylines are instantly recognisable as being a Sacerdoti tale
Kirsty at Book Love Bug on SET ME FREE
I fell in love with this book
Prima magazine
Dani's writing pulled me in... It reminded me of the safety of those arms around you as a child when something scares you. Everything felt very real to me and certainly had an effect on my emotions. This is one woman's path to healing and is full of love, hope, promise and loyalty. The most poignant Glen Avich novel yet!
