Summary

May Rosevere has reached the grand old age of 110, thanks to several slices of toast with butter every morning, a glass (or two) of port, and the wonders of the Cornish sea air - or so she tells everyone.

But there’s much more to May than her remarkable age. She has a secret. One that no one has ever discovered....

Boring read for me I'm sorry to say.😔

I'm sad to say I found this book quite dreary. I heard it as an audio book and the narration did very little to peak my interest either. I struggled hard to finish it but was quite determined to, if only to honestly add to my Goodreads Reading Challenge.

Not for me

I am sure some people will love this. Not for me... too twee. I plodded on waiting for something to happen. It doesn’t.
I wasn’t very keen on the narration. Very dull with some weird accents

Predictable and poorly read but charming characters

This was a rather predictable story and annoyingly slow narration. Not my cup of tea.
