The Place We Call Home by Faith Hogan

About the book

Welcome to Ballycove, the home of Corrigan Mills...


Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Irish countryside the famed mills have created the finest wool in all of Ireland. Run by the seemingly perfect Corrigan family, but every family has its secrets, and how the mills came to be the Corrigan's is one of them...

Miranda and her husband were never meant to own the mills, until one fateful day catapults them into a life they never thought they'd lead.

Ada has forever lived her life in her sister's shadow. Wanting only to please her mother and take her place as the new leader of the mill, Ada might just have to take a look at what her heart really wants.

Callie has a flourishing international career as a top designer and a man who loves her dearly, she appears to have it all. When a secret is revealed and she's unceremoniously turfed out of the design world, Callie might just get what's she's been yearning for. The chance to go home.

Simon has always wanted more. More money, more fame, more notoriety. The problem child. Simon has made more enemies than friends over the years, and when one of his latest schemes falls foul he'll have to return to the people who always believe in him.

Ballycove isn't just a town in the Irish countryside. It isn't just the base of the famous mills. It's a place to call home.

Best-selling author, Faith Hogan returns with a family tale of love, loss, secrets and finding yourself.

I am fluent in Italian. LOVE animals. 

Not a fan of winter. I drive a bit too fast.

I am a die-hard 80's fan.

If I could choose anyone in the world to hug,

it would be Nate and Jeremiah xo.


I have traveled and witnessed the beauty of our glorious Earth.

I have suffered, laughed, lived, lost, learned, and loved and

I am a person of great faith. 

I believe in heaven, miracles, and happy-ever-afters.
