Summary

A heartwarming tale from the queen of West Country sagas, Linda Finlay.

In a tumbledown Cornish cottage, with an alcoholic father, Colenso Carne works with the Serpentine stone from the local mine. When she catches the eye of the new factory manager, her father insists she rejects her beloved Kitto in order to marry Fenton.

Forced to flee the village when Fenton turns nasty, she is taken under the wing of wise woman Mara and travels to local fairs, learning to make bonbons to pay her way.

But she never gives up hope of being reunited with Kitto....

Set against the dramatic Cornish coastline, this tale of triumph and tragedy will delight fans of Rosie Goodwin and Dilly Court.

A light listen

Another pretty story by Linda Finlay. Well researched and written. The narrator is a bit too 'girlie'.
