A Cornish Stranger…out in paperback and my favourite books set in Cornwall

Posted on: April 24th, 2015

Cornish StrangerYesterday saw the release of the paperback for A Cornish Stranger and before I know it – it will May 7th and Under A Cornish Sky will be out in trade paperback (the big paperback). So to celebrate two books out, I thought I’d ask some of my fellow writers what their top three favourite books set in Cornwall. Hopefully this list might help fill the Cornish void that will emerge when Poldark finishes on Sunday…

To begin I’ll tell you my top three novels set in Cornwall. It’s always hard to choose because they change depending on mood but at the moment…

 

1. Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne DuMaurier. This is the first book of hers I’d read and it still holds top place.

2. The Shell Seekers by Rosamund Pilcher…totally engrossing and wonderful…

3. Not Forgetting the Whale by John Ironmonger…love this book! It captures a mythical, magical Cornwall that I’ve been privileged to catch a glimpse of every so often.

 

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing the lovely Katie FForde’s top three!
