One Cornish Summer…and a glimpse of Amanda Jennings
I have loved the Cornish memories shared by my generous fellow authors and the many memories shared by others with the hashtag #OneCornishSummer on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram…later today there will be a draw to select a winner to receive a copy of the book and the delicious Cornish Rock Samphire gin from Curio…
Today the final memory is a snapshot. The wonderful Amanda Jennings is under deadline and words need to go elsewhere. However this picture to me speaks of my memories of my kids…every summer here in Cornwall rain or shine on we were on a beach, in a rock pool….simple, perfect, real, Cornwall.
Amanda’s latest book, The Cliff House, is set in Cornwall…and I loved it!
Cornwall, summer of 1986.
The Davenports, with their fast cars and glamorous clothes, living the dream in a breathtaking house overlooking the sea.
If only… thinks sixteen-year-old Tamsyn, her binoculars trained on the perfect family in their perfect home.
If only her life was as perfect as theirs.
If only Edie Davenport would be her friend.
If only she lived at The Cliff House…
Amanda Jennings weaves a haunting tale of obsession, loss and longing, set against the brooding North Cornish coastline, destined to stay with readers long after the final page is turned.
