Publisher's Summary

You will love this emotional and gripping listen from Sunday Times best-selling author Fern Britton.

When the only place you want to be is home....

When Ella's beloved grandmother dies, she comes back to the beautiful Cornish coast to heal her heart. There she finds her home again and discovers a new life and new love...but she also opens a treasure trove of secrets.

Sennen left Cornwall a young single mum but unable to cope. She left her children, her family and part of her. She's spent the years hiding from her past, hiding from herself.

Now it's time to come back. To Cornwall. To face her mistakes. To pray for forgiveness. To hope for a future with her daughter.

Pendruggan: a Cornish village with secrets at its heart.

©2018 Fern Britton (P)2018 HarperCollins Publishers

Poor narration!

The narrator should have listen to the previous narrator. She has totally changed the characters made them sound totally different from the previous book The Postcard!!! Henry sounds like a pompous idiot and Kit has totally changed and Ella sounds whinney!!

Ghastly narration.

The story, which follows on from The Postcard, is okay. Lacks a little in depth and interest but generally is fine.

But oh my! The narration is appallingly bad. So much so that on a number of occasions I have been tempted to give up on it. I became fond of the characters as narrated in The Postcard but can't bear them now. Kit has suddenly become a faux Cornish country bumpkin when the due diligence of some background research would have lead the narrator to see that he did not originate from Cornwall and had, in fact, only recently arrived. Regional accents should be left well alone unless the narrator can do them well and this one can't. At all.

Ella is whiny and pathetic and Henry...ugh. In fact, each and every character has been given a whining tone that irritates and alienates the listener.

I wish that the same narrator had been used for this book as for The Postcard if only so that continuity could be maintained.

disappointing

I read the first novel and although it will never win any literary awards it was ok as a holiday read. This 2nd book was quite predictable and the narration at some times cringe worthy.

Loved it

Really loved this book but struggled with the narrator. The characters had changed from the book before and I’m not sure why!

Difficult to follow

A difficult to follow story, story line keeps jumping about so you lose the plot.

Does not sit well in 2019

This does not have the same feel of the other books. The female characters have very weak, trembly voices and are always sighing and fainting, leaving the unreasonable behaviour of the male characters completely unchecked. There are a few slightly uncomfortable moments of stereotyping that I wasn’t sure about either. I’m not some bra burning feminist - far from it - but I became frustrated at how it took a man to arrive on the scene to tackle the main male character’s nasty behaviour, whilst sensible intelligent women were seemingly paralysed by his (non existent) charms. Come on - we can do better in the present day!
