Janet Gover’s Top Three Books Set in Cornwall

Posted on: May 1st, 2015

To celebrate the paperback release of A Cornish Stranger on the 23rd of April and Under A Cornish Sky of the 7th of May I’ve asked several of my favourite authors to share their top three Cornish reads.

Here’s what Janet Had to say…

Apart from your books, Liz – I will say….

Daphne Du Maurier, one of my favourite authors, wrote many books set in Cornwall. Rebecca is top of my list, but there was also Jamaica Inn and, well, too many to list.

Victoria Holt wrote fabulous books set in great gothic mansions, usually on the cliffs of Cornwall. Penmarric is one that leaps immediately to mind. It had me wanting to visit Cornwall before I had even come to the U.K.

Susanna Kersley also writes a wonderful mix of historical and timeslip – her novel The Rose Garden is set on Cornwall. I loved it. It was haunting and beautiful.
