Lovereading view...

A truly lovely, involved, family saga of wartime secrets only coming to the surface as dying ‘Jaunty’ scribbles down her story for her granddaughter to read and better understand her parentage. It is the sort of tale that twists and turns through dramatic historical events as the present day is lived. The Cornish background is beautiful, the war story enthralling and the present day romance charming. Highly recommended. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

A Cornish Stranger by Liz Fenwick

There's an old Cornish saying: 'Save a stranger from the sea, he'll turn your enemy...' When her reclusive grandmother becomes too frail to live alone, Gabriella Blythe moves into the remote waterside cabin on Frenchman's Creek which has been her grandmother's home for decades. Once a celebrated artist, Jaunty's days are coming to a close but she is still haunted by events in her past, particularly the sinking of Lancasteria during the war. Everything is fine until a handsome stranger arrives in a storm, seeking help. Fin has been left a family legacy: a delicate watercolour of a cabin above the creek which leads him to this beautiful stretch of Cornish water. As Fin begins to pick at the clues of the painting, he is drawn into the lives of Gabe and Jaunty, unraveling a remarkable story of identity and betrayal...In this delightful novel, Liz Fenwick weaves a spell-binding tale of romance and intrigue, set against the gorgeous Cornish coast.
