Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of As the Sun Breaks Through by Ellie Dean, read by Penelope Freeman.

The 15th Cliffehaven novel by Sunday Times best-selling author Ellie Dean.

Cliffehaven, June 1944.

As the planes continue to circle over Cliffehaven, Peggy Reilly’s sister, Doris, must seek refuge after a V-1 blast destroys her home. Rita, Sarah and the other residents at Beach View Boarding House quickly find their peace disturbed, and it’s not long before even Peggy loses her patience. But with more bad news to come, will Doris finally be forced to swallow her pride? 

Meanwhile Peggy’s father-in-law, Ron Reilly, is delighted when his sweetheart, Rosie, returns home. Until a heartbreaking confession suggests things may never be the same between them. 

With loved ones scattered far and wide across the globe and tensions running high, the end of the war feels somehow further than ever. And yet with the long-awaited Allied invasion in sight, a glimmer of light is starting to break through....

A fabulous, heartwarming Second World War novel in Ellie Dean's best-selling Cliffehaven series (previously called the Beach View Boarding House series).

Enjoyable as always.

i enjoyed this latest instalment but it felt as though something was missing. Seemed shorter than other books and i was distracted by a change in the narrator to begin with.

They just get better !

when you get to the last chapter your heart sinks. You think the next book won't be as good, it can't be, but it always is. Brilliant narration.
