Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of As the Sun Breaks Through by Ellie Dean, read by Penelope Freeman.

The 15th Cliffehaven novel by Sunday Times best-selling author Ellie Dean.

Cliffehaven, June 1944.

As the planes continue to circle over Cliffehaven, Peggy Reilly’s sister, Doris, must seek refuge after a V-1 blast destroys her home. Rita, Sarah and the other residents at Beach View Boarding House quickly find their peace disturbed, and it’s not long before even Peggy loses her patience. But with more bad news to come, will Doris finally be forced to swallow her pride? 

Meanwhile Peggy’s father-in-law, Ron Reilly, is delighted when his sweetheart, Rosie, returns home. Until a heartbreaking confession suggests things may never be the same between them. 

With loved ones scattered far and wide across the globe and tensions running high, the end of the war feels somehow further than ever. And yet with the long-awaited Allied invasion in sight, a glimmer of light is starting to break through....

A fabulous, heartwarming Second World War novel in Ellie Dean's best-selling Cliffehaven series (previously called the Beach View Boarding House series).

As the Sun Breaks Through

Good light reading. Got a little to much at the end but still worthy of passing the time ok

Much enjoyed

I've come to love this family and their friends. The story is gripping, conjuring up all our memories of my family stories of the era. Pamela Freeman's narration is superb. I am on tenterhooks for the next book.

Ellie Dean “Breaks Through” Again!

I love all of the books in Ms. Dean’s Cliffehaven series (this is #15)!! All of the characters are just like family and old friends and I find myself wishing I could have a week at Beach View Boarding House.
I can’t wait for the next one. I really hope they don’t end when WWII ends!

Enjoyable as always.

i enjoyed this latest instalment but it felt as though something was missing. Seemed shorter than other books and i was distracted by a change in the narrator to begin with.

They just get better !

when you get to the last chapter your heart sinks. You think the next book won't be as good, it can't be, but it always is. Brilliant narration.

A lovely story

I thoroughly enjoy the Cliffehaven series; the characters are well developed and the story lines interesting with some unexpected moments. The narrator is first class and does a fabulous job.
