Come This Way Home
  • Come This Way Home

  • One wet and stormy Irish summer, the three Miller sisters gather at their grand but shabby old family home, Tobar Lodge.

    Gina, middle sister and mum to a troubled teenage girl, is doing her best to keep the old country house afloat by playing host to summer visitors who rent converted cottages on the land.

    Eldest, Lottie, is home to lick her wounds after her latest romantic adventure has ended in disaster once again.

    Rachel, the youngest, has led a more charmed life but this time is coming home accompanied by a family struggling after the collapse of her husband's business.

    As family and strangers meet and collide, and a long hidden secret is exposed, they begin to discover that love and life is all about losing, yearning for and ultimately finding a place called home. By the time the holiday season draws to a close, all will realise that complications of past lives simmer just beneath the surface, a rich layer of secrets concealed from the eyes of others but keenly felt in the hearts of those to whom they belong.
