Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The charming and romantic first novel by Kate Fenton, set on the Yorkshire Moors.

Frankie Cleverdon is there to paint. Alone and away from it all in a cottage buried in the North Yorkshire Moors. Away from the fretfulnes of London. And away from men and a messy love life.

So when she sees the lone fisherman from her window, she sees a figure to be painted into a landscape. This bumbling man is absolutely not her type, but it is through Ned Cowper that she finds herself introduced to her neighbours in the valley - who she soons discovers are dangerous to know. And through Ned too she learns - painfully - that a worldly, witty and quite wise woman can still find she had fallen in love with the most unlikely of men.
