Publisher Description

'A great read about guilt, atonement and identity' - Hello

'You won't want this one to end' - Marie Claire

From the author of NETFLIX SENSATION ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL

1939, Will and Alice are evacuated to a granite farm in north Cornwall, perched on a windswept cliff. There they meet the farmer's daughter, Maggie, and enjoy a childhood largely protected from the ravages of war.

But in the sweltering summer of 1943 something happens that will have tragic consequences. A small lie escalates out of all proportion. Over 70 years on Alice is determined to make amends - but has she left it too late?

2014, and Maggie's granddaughter Lucy flees to the childhood home she couldn't wait to leave, marriage over; career ending thanks to one terrible mistake. Can she rebuild herself? And can she help her grandmother, plagued by a secret, to find some lasting peace?

Captures Cornwall

I read to escape and this book is perfect for that. Grounded by real issues- suicide, infidelity, regret, guilt, financial problems - but with the overriding sense that standing on a cliff gazing out to sea keeps the heart and mind going. This book is optimistic, thought provoking and evocative and perfect for those of us with fond memories of childhood holidays in Cornwall.
