A Cornish Summer

A Cornish Summer

The perfect feel-good summer read about family, love and secrets

Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of A Cornish Summer, written by Catherine Alliott and read by Gemma Whelan.

Flora's been in love with her husband for twenty years.
The trouble is, he's been married to someone else for the past fifteen.

Now she's been invited to spend the summer in the shady lanes and sandy coves of Cornwall. It should be blissful.

There's just one small snag: she'll be staying with her former mother-in-law, Belinda.

And Flora discovers she's not the only one invited when her ex-husband shows up out of the blue, complete with his new wife. So now there are two small snags.

Can Flora spend the summer playing happy families with the woman who stole her husband's heart, and the mother-in-law who might have had a hand in it?

Or will stumbling on the family secret change her mind about them all?

'Oh how I enjoyed this! No one writes about Cornwall like Catherine. Yet another fabulous book, packed with glamour, delicious characters and myriad family complications!' Jill Mansell

Reviews

  • Simply a delight: funny, intelligent and at times heart wrenching. It's full of such witty, entertaining characters, and best of all, it transported me away from real life into a Cornish holiday that I didn't want to leave. It's the perfect summer read
    Sophie Kinsella
