3 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A funny, poignant page-turner about family dysfunctions, coming of age and forgiving your mother. And falling in love...

After years of romantic drought, Nell is enjoying a thrilling fling with a sexy new man and loving London life, somehow managing to juggle single motherhood with a busy career. Plus, in the city it's easy to avoid her sister who is about to marry Nell's ex. (Yes, messy.)

Then she gets the news. Please could she return to Tredower, the crumbling old family home in Cornwall for the summer Disaster. Tredower has no wifi, harbours her big dysfunctional family, and, far worse, memories of her passionate love affair with the man who is about to become her brother-in-law. The past is another county. Can she go there?

Another woman is making her way west too, carrying an explosive secret. Love will be lost, broken, and found, lives changed forever...
