Description of this Book

`The Queen of the contemporary Cornish novel' The Guardian Sometimes going home is just the beginning... Boskenna, the beautiful, imposing house standing on the Cornish cliffs, means something different to each of the Trewin women. For Joan, as a glamorous young wife in the 1960s, it was a paradise where she and her husband could entertain and escape a world where no one was quite what they seemed - a world that would ultimately cost their marriage and end in tragedy. Diana, her daughter, still dreams of her childhood there - the endless blue skies and wide lawns, book-filled rooms and parties, the sound of the sea at the end of the coastal path - even the family she adored was shattered there. And for the youngest, broken-hearted Lottie, heading home in the August traffic, returning to Boskenna is a welcome escape from a life gone wrong in London, but will mean facing a past she'd hoped to forget. As the three women gather in Boskenna for a final time, the secrets hidden within the beautiful old house will be revealed in a summer that will leave them changed for ever. The Path to the Sea beautifully evokes the mystery and secrets of the Cornish coast, and will be loved by fans of Kate Morton and Rachel Hore PRAISE FOR LIZ FENWICK `The Queen of the contemporary Cornish novel' The Guardian 'Full of warmth, wisdom and compassion . . .
