For Rose, every day is a gift. She narrowly survived a life-threatening illness and owes everything to her anonymous donor. Determined to thank him, Rose follows a trail of clues that lead her to the little Cornish fishing village of Falford.
But things become complicated when Rose is drawn into local life, becoming involved in the legendary Falford Regatta and meeting the handsome Morvah brothers – one of whom might just be the man she’s looking for. But which one?
Can Rose find the answer she’s searching for, or will she lose her heart before the summer is over?
An Endless Cornish Summer by Phillipa Ashley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Such a sweet and gratifying read.
I would like to thank Avon Books UK for providing me with an advance readers copy via access to the galley for free through the NetGalley program.
I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a summer read that you want to just immerse yourself into, a moment in someone else’s story with a bit of warmth, hope, escapism, sailing on the water, archeological intrigue, love, brokenness, and a unifying heartfelt, selfless life story.
Such a lovely read. Starts off mellow, then revisits the past with standout memories and emotional reconciliation, both surprise and acceptance in a way that I felt was realistic and inviting for a book of this subject matter. I felt the joy, the longing, the portrayal of health not lost but shared and all the village insight to go with it. I’ll just leave it at that as to not give it away.
Ashley always writes in a way that puts readers to ease. I felt captured by the moments in time with just enough peek into the next scene without being drawn out or belabored.
There were a few moments of more passive approach, lines such as would have meant, had to, might, were this, so this, had been something, seemed, thought it would have. Which was okay, just more than I wanted to read over.
I loved the overall storyline and approach to more delicate emotional state, the supportive characters, and how life changes were portrayed.
