A well-established, lovely author who frequently gives us war-based dramas returns to her horse racing world of To Hear a Nightingale and The Nightingale Sings.

A contemporary tale which harks back to the eighteenth century when a mother and daughter unite in helping a young man regain his memory. It turns out that although he has links to the nearby manor house, when we learn of the horrific trauma that unbalanced him, it sent shivers down my spine.

Heartwarming, compelling and full of charm Out of the Blue tells the story of Florence, a lady recovering from a family tragedy who discovers a strangely dressed and suspiciously disorientated young man asleep in her guest cottage at her home. Against the advice of friends and family who fear he may be a fraud, she decides to help him restore his wandering mind and to discover who he might be. As the mystery unfolds it is apparent his real identity is quite close to home and in their quest an adventure takes them into many pasts, not least that of the young man. In doing so they are finally able to put the tragedies of her own past and that of the young man behind them, repair their once disjointed lives, and embrace a new and happy future.
I love this author. Real characters, strong plots and lots of incidents carry you along at a good pace. This, with its Cornish setting and compelling love story, is a great introduction to her work. Then there are many to try, The Blue Note or To Hear a Nightingale are my favourites.Comparison: Judith Lennox, E V Thompson, Caroline Harvey.Similar this month: Jojo Moyes, Valerie Wood.
