Publisher's Summary

There's an old Cornish saying: "Save a stranger from the sea, he'll turn your enemy...."

When her reclusive grandmother becomes too frail to live alone, Gabriella Blythe moves into the remote waterside cabin on Frenchman's Creek which has been her grandmother's home for decades. Once a celebrated artist, Jaunty's days are coming to a close, but she is still haunted by events in her past, particularly the sinking of Lancasteria during the war. Everything is fine until a handsome stranger arrives in a storm, seeking help.

Fin has been left a family legacy: a delicate watercolour of a cabin above the creek which leads him to this beautiful stretch of Cornish water. As Fin begins to pick at the clues of the painting, he is drawn into the lives of Gabe and Jaunty, unraveling a remarkable story of identity and betrayal....

In this delightful novel, Liz Fenwick weaves a spellbinding tale of romance and intrigue set against the gorgeous Cornish coast.

    "Wonderful, enchanting,"

    Another beautifully woven story. One that looks at the past and the present; weaving the characters together in ways that would seem impossible and yet very believable.

    "Absolutely loved this book"

    This was not the sort of book I would normally read, however I am so glad that I did.

    This is a story where secrets hidden for decades will finally out.

    The narration was excellent and I must say I will certainly read more from Ann Dover.

    Loved it!

    Story
    "Disappointing"

    Having read the good reviews for this book, I was expecting an engaging listen, especially as it is set in Cornwall, which should have provided an atmospheric backdrop for the novel.
    The characters of Gabriella and her grandmother, Jaunty, didn't engage me, they were one dimensional and stereotypical. Their past stories were hinted at in a clumsy, obvious way that failed to interest me or draw me into the book. I found the way the characters behaved in social situations to be unbelievable, their reactions to situations unrealistic and the dialogue stilted and strange.
    The backdrop of Cornwall was not described in a way that transported the listener but rather like the characters was bland and monochromic.
    The narrator did a good job.
    I tried to persevere but when it became a chore to continue to listen, I decided to give up and move on.
