Synopsis

A House by the Sea by Elvi Rhodes

Ever since the death of her beloved husband Peter, Caroline’s life in Bath has not been the same. Friends, though sympathetic, have moved on, her daughter seems so far away and life just seems to be passing her by.

An impulsive moment sees her buying a dilapidated house in Brighton, a place that holds happy memories for her, and soon she is ensconced in a new life in her house by the sea.

But these things are never that simple. Caroline’s decision is met with outrage and incredulity from those who care about her and at times there seem to be insurmountable obstacles ahead. Can she overcome these difficulties, find happiness in her new life and even leave a little room for love?
