When her reclusive grandmother becomes too frail to live alone, Gabriella Blythe moves into the remote waterside cabin on Frenchman’s Creek which has been her grandmother’s home for decades.
Once a celebrated artist, Jaunty’s days are coming to a close but she is still haunted by events in her past, particularly the sinking of Lancasteria during the war.
Everything is fine until a handsome stranger arrives in a storm, seeking help. Fin has been left a family legacy: a delicate watercolour of a cabin above the creek which leads him to this beautiful stretch of Cornish water.
As Fin begins to pick at the clues of the painting, he is drawn into the lives of Gabe and Jaunty, unraveling a remarkable story of identity and betrayal.. .
I had heard of Liz Fenwick but had never read any of her books, now I am not sure why I hadn’t read any as I fell in love with this story. The cover looked great and I couldn’t wait to get started. The plot is an emotional one but it is portrayed so well. I love reading a good book where you can just pick it up and put it down but still remember what is going on.
I loved the fact at the end that the cabin is actually a real place, so one day I would love to visit and I really liked the photos of the different places at the back, it is such a clever idea. I will definitely be looking out for more of Liz Fenwick’s books as I thought this one was brilliant.
