A heartwarming historical saga set on the Cornish coast! Perfect for fans of Rosamunde Pilcher, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Liz Fenwick and Kate Morton.
As Clare travels into her great-aunt’s past, can she find the key to her own future?
Independent and ambitious, Clare Chandler is a true Nineties woman. But now she’s thirty-six, her glittering career in banking – and her single and carefree lifestyle – are beginning to lose their shine.
Heartbroken by the death of her free-spirited great-aunt Verity Ashland, Clare puts her life on hold and travels back to Lemorrick, the lovely old house in Cornwall where she grew up, to settle Verity’s affairs.
Soon Clare is lulled back into the easy rhythms of Lemorrick and the sea, and the stress of her London life begins to melt away.
And when she unexpectedly runs into her old flame Nick Courtfield, Clare realises that time hasn’t altered her feelings for him.
When Clare finds Verity’s diaries – and uncovers the heartbreaking secret her great-aunt took to her grave – her antipathy towards Nick’s family finally becomes clear.
But the most shocking twist in the tale has yet to reveal itself …
When Nick learns the truth, will their rekindled romance stand a chance? Or are some sins too terrible to ever be forgiven?
Can Clare find a way to right the wrongs of the past – and find her own destiny at the same time?
