It took a good week of test driving names for my newest gnome, but in the end I decided Mr Penumbra was the winner. So excited to have him keep me company in my new reading shed (to be completed by next weekend!) #bookgnome #mrpenumbra #gnomelife

Opening line: “The house comes into view as I steer the car around the perilous potholes - still not filled in from ten years ago, and growing even deeper, I bump along a little further, then pull to a halt and stare at Pandora, thinking that it‘s really not that pretty, unlike the glossy shots of holiday homes you see on upmarket property websites.” #theolovetree #lucindariley #firstline #openingline #bookgnome #bookcover #panmacmillan
