It’s 20 years since Miranda, then 16, holidayed in Cornwall and her life changed forever. Now she’s back again – with her mother Clare and the ashes of her stepfather Jack, whose wish was to be scattered on the sea overlooked by their one-time holiday home.
The picturesque cove seems just the same as ever, but the people are different – more smart incomers, fewer locals, more luxury yachts in the harbour. But Miranda and Clare both find some strangely familiar faces, and revisit the emotions they both thought had disappeared.

Loved the Cornish holiday setting and the expressed feeling of renewal which is a strong undercurrent in the storyline. Easy to follow plot, and likeable characters all made for a very enjoyable listen.
Overall, I think Miranda was the character I grew most fond of - struggling with a diverse family and the death of her stepfather whilst wrestling her own daily life, emotions and memories.
I think Julia Franklin portrayed Jess in a very positive way, conveying her strength of spirit and her staunch friendship with Miranda (and Andrew!) extremely well
Friendship, old flames and a little Cornish magic........
