He helped you move on… Until you discovered what he did.
Louisa Adams has done her best to hold herself together in the years since she lost her husband in a car accident. But each morning she wakes to find his side of the bed cold is more painful than the last, and she’s struggling to make ends meet as a writer. She must admit defeat and move into the crumbling seaside guest house her daughter just bought. Perhaps it might help put what’s left of their broken family back together…
There, Louisa is offered a final chance to save her career by writing an article on a local sand artist, Isaac. Except, when he turns to greet her – tall, handsome and weather-worn – something about him feels disturbingly familiar. Why, when he looks into her eyes, does she feel like he knows exactly who she is and everything she’s been through?
As they explore the rugged coastline’s hidden coves together – living and laughing like she never thought she would again – Louisa is fascinated by this man who creates beautiful sculptures on the shoreline, but deep down she knows he’s keeping a secret from her. The discovery of a charcoal scribble in one of his sketchbooks linking him to the death of her husband, confirms her deepest fear. Is she ready for what he will tell her, and will letting him in tear her family and her heart apart all over again?
A heartbreaking, page-turning and completely unforgettable family drama you will read in one sitting. Perfect for anyone who loves Amanda Prowse, Kerry Fisher and Jodi Picoult.
What an utterly gorgeous book this is! I just adored this book, and was totally enthralled by it.
The descriptive prose in this book is so evocative I could just picture the scene perfectly, and the beautiful setting of a seaside town in Devon in summer is so captivating.
I really liked Louisa as a character, and Isaac too, and I hoped that whatever secrets he held, that they would not change my perception of him. There are not many characters in this book, and there is no need for many, as those that we meet are so real, and so well drawn, that we feel as though we know them all.
Everything about this book just combines to make the perfect enthralling read. The ambience, the vivid setting, the perfect pace, the characters and the beautifully woven plot, all work so well.
This beautiful book is one that you will hold in your heart for a long time. It’s poignant and emotional, but will leave you feeling hopeful and positive. I can’t recommend it highly enough for an all-consuming and thoroughly entrancing read.
After a varied career, Emma Davies once worked for a design studio where she was asked to provide a fun and humorous (and not necessarily true) anecdote for their website. She wrote the following: ‘I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.’ Well the job in the design studio didn’t work out but she’s now a forty something mother of three and is happy to report the rest of her dream came true.
After many years as a finance manager she now writes full time and is far happier playing with words than numbers. She lives with her husband, three children, and two guinea pigs in rural Shropshire where she writes in all the gaps in between real life. It’s a county she adores, her love of its beautiful people and landscapes providing endless inspiration for her books, and in fact the only thing that would make Shropshire more idyllic is if it were by the sea.
