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.

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!!

disappointing <br />

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.

Terrible narration....

This is such a huge disappointment! The characters sound so old, kit sounds like an old man of 70!! Makes it a bit creepy....why change narration from The Postcard? Truly terrible.

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!

Disappointing narration

The character voices have changed from the previous book. Kit has been given an accent, probably Cornish, but in the last book he relocated from the South East. Ella sounds less relatable and likeable then the previous book. I have been considering giving up on the book but the story is very good so I’ve tried to ignore the strange accents.
