Publisher's Summary

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 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 and find happiness in her new life?

    "Kept waiting for it to start!"

    I listened to this book after a friend recommended Elvi Rhodes to me and so I was fairly optimistic when I started listening to it, but I will be honest I found it rather dull. I kept thinking it would get better and something would happen but I'm afraid it didn't. I didn't think the characters were particularly well drawn either, there was no real sense of being in Brighton and so I cannot imagine why other reviewers have given it such a high grading. Sorry!
