Sunday Times bestselling author offers up a delightful menu of Cornish sun, heartwarming friendship and a little taste of Italy in her heart-stopping new novel
In a quaint seaside resort, a charming bakery holds the key to another world . . .
Returning to the much loved world of the Little Beach Street Bakery, Jenny Colgan will delight existing fans of the series and entrance new readers with this spellbinding new novel.
Marisa Rosso is struggling. Since the death of her beloved grandfather back home in Italy, she can't seem to find a way out of her grief. She's a registrar, and knows losing grandparents is a natural part of life, so why does she feel so lost?
When she hears a hospital is recruiting in Mount Polbearne, a tiny and remote tidal island off the Cornish coast, Marisa thinks she has found the perfect retreat. Perhaps some solitude is just what she needs to combat her homesickness and rediscover her equilibrium.
But Mount Polbearne is a far cry from the sleepy little place she was imagining. Between her noisy Russian piano-teaching neighbour and the hustle and bustle of a community determined to get back on its feet, Marisa finds solitude is not so easy to come by. Especially when finds herself somehow involved with a tiny local bakery desperately in need of some new zest to save it . . .
