Set in 1882, this is the story of the Hart family who spend summer as usual at their country house on the Cornish coast. But this year, things are different. The sheltered and sensitive Isabel is approaching her 21st birthday, and there is talk of an engagement to Jared, the son of old family friends, whom Isabel has known since childhood. Isabel’s mother Marie is seriously ill. And Isabel sees something that turns her world upside down.

The events of this sweltering summer, leading up to Isabel’s birthday ball, form the framework of the story. It is more than a simple historical romance. The Harts must keep up appearances before their house guests and friends despite the tensions that arise within the family, and there are family secrets that Isabel has never been told. Can Isabel come to terms with her deep-seated fears and face reality?

The characters are well-drawn and I had no difficulty in visualising them as I recorded the book. I particularly enjoyed recording the indomitable Aunt Margot, Isabel’s widowed aunt, and Isabel’s brother-in-law Walter who does, oh does so enjoy his food. All in all, a book that I think you will enjoy.

No violence, sex or swearing – makes a pleasant change! 🙂

“With rich prose and compelling characters, Anita Davison weaves a magnificent Victorian era love story filled with dark family secrets and intrigues. Each chapter is more tempting than the one before it. Fans of eloquent and meaningful romantic historical fiction will want to savour every word. Not only are the historical details well presented, but the love story that unfolds is exhilarating and stunning. A deep, enriching lesson on the nature of life and love.” — Mirella Patzer – Historical Novel Review Blog

  1. Thank you for your kind comments, Ruth and I appreciate all the help you gave me. Twelve and a half hours? Really – Whew! I blogged about you today too at The Disorganised Author

  2. Elizabeth Says:

    Do you know when this book will be up at Audible? Sounds interesting.

    • RuthieG Says:

      I know Audible is pretty slow at listing them, Elizabeth, but I don’t know how slow. I am finding out.

    • RuthieG Says:

      I have done a bit of digging, Elizabeth, and it appears that two of my previous books took 6 weeks for Audible to list them. So we would be looking at something like mid-November. 😦 Very disappointing.

      I will post again when it is there.
