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....

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?

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.

Totally brilliant!

I am a huge fan of Jenny Eclair and read and re-read all her books many times over. This novel is exceptional with some truly terrible people whose selfish wickedness takes one's breath away. There are the sad characters and the pathetic,the the desperate and the kind souls who try to pick up the pieces, for the lost and the broken-a right old assortment!
Jenny's writing always leaves me breathless with her sharp observations and wry humour.
Laughter and tears and a little thrill of recognition at some of the cameos.
I don't know how Jenny does it but for me each new book is better than the last!

Dont waste ypur time or money<br />

Wow! First Jenny Eclair book for me and definitely the last. Hoped it would get better as it went on and although I struggled to the wnd it didnt get any better. No characters to like or care about. All in all a strange read/listen.

A thoroughly enjoyable listen

This is the first Jenny Eclair book I’ve listened to and found it excellent. Great storyline, credible characters and a really good performance.

I shall now listen to her other books. I can really recommend, you won’t be disappointed.
