THE EIGHTEENTH CLIFFEHAVEN NOVEL BY SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR ELLIE DEAN
Peace has finally been declared in the Far East, but for those living at Beach View Boarding House, the news brings mixed emotions.
Peggy Reilly is devastated that her husband Jim will not be coming home for Christmas. And Sarah and Jane, who have lived at Beach View throughout much of the conflict, dread what they will find when they go back to Singapore.
Life in Cliffehaven is in a whirlwind of change as the men return from the war and Peggy’s evacuee chicks begin to spread their wings and start new lives in different corners of the world.
Peggy and Jim have longed to be together after so many years apart, but war has left them profoundly changed. Can they rekindle the loving, close relationship they’d shared before?
I have loved everyone of the books in this series and am sad to have come to the end. I have learnt a lot and the books detailing Singapore brought back many memories of Raffles and life in Singapore and Malaya in the 50’s.
The best series I’ve ever read!
If I could give this book and series 10 stars I would. I loved every single book, so much I’ve read the whole series twice! I accidentally stumbled on the First book in the Beachview series at my doctors surgery and ever since then I have been hooked. My grandma is also a big fan of Ellie Dean and we’ve throughly enjoyed chatting together about the books and characters! I was actually sad when the series came to an end! Love the characters, especially Ron (he reminds me of my Dad) and I love the way the books made me feel like I was really there living through the war years with them. Amazing books!
Brilliant end to a brilliant series. All these books have been well written with realistic characters and storylines. Ellie has researched the historical facts and written about them with amazing accuracy. I really felt I was part of the scene be it in the Far East with the heat and humidity or shivering in an air raid shelter listening to the bombs dropping.
