A wonderful holiday read about a Cornish escape
'Absorbing and satisfying . . . Willett's specialist subject is family complications past and present, all served up, cream-tea-like, with lashings of lush Cornish setting.' * Daily Mail * Lovely . . . Made me long for a long hot summer by the sea with friends and family. I loved that new beginnings turn up when you least expect them. * Jo Thomas, author of The Oyster Catcher * Warm summer reading * Choice Magazine *
Marcia Willett's early life was devoted to the ballet, but her dreams of becoming a ballerina ended when she grew out of the classical proportions required. She had always loved books, and a family crisis made her take up a new career as a novelist - a decision she never regretted. She lived in a beautiful and wild part of Devon, and her surroundings inspired many of her novels. Marcia passed away in June 2022. She leaves behind a son and two grandchildren.
