Summary

From Sunday Times Top 10 best seller Jenny Eclair comes her heartbreaking new novel. 

In deepest Cornwall, the mansion Kittiwake has seen many pass through its doors since it was bought by American heiress Peggy Carmichael 70 years ago.    

Over the decades, the keys have been handed down through the family, and now it belongs to Bel's adoptive brother, Lance. It's where he'll be celebrating his 50th birthday, and Bel is invited.  

But in going back to Kittiwake, Bel will be returning to the place where it all began - where, following the death of a child, a sequence of events was set in motion years ago, the consequences of which are still rippling down through the generations....

spellbound from start to end

I couldn't stop listening and been drawn in to the lives of the characters. Well written and well narrated by Jenny. It was one of those stories that you hate to end.

Wonderful book

it felt like I was sat on the settee with Jenny's arm round me , listening to the story. A story of love and sadness, of hope and despair. I loved all the characters. it was like a trip down memory lane, memories I didnt know I had, from the 70s and 80s. however, the epilogue confuses me. am I missing something?
