Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jenny Colgan returns to the setting of her beloved Little Beach Street Bakery series for a timely and heartfelt novel set in a Cornish seaside village.

Marisa Rosso can’t understand why everyone else is getting on with their lives as she still struggles to get over the death of her beloved grandfather, back home in Italy. Everyone loses grandparents, right? Why is she taking it so badly?

Retreating further and further from normal life, she moves to the end of the earth - the remote tidal island of Mount Polbearne, at the foot of Cornwall, hoping for peace and solitude, while carrying on her job as a registrar, dealing with births, weddings, and deaths, even as she feels life is passing her by.

Unfortunately - or fortunately? - the solitude she craves proves elusive. Between her noisy Russian piano-teaching neighbor, the bustle and community spirit of the tiny village struggling back to life after the quarantine, and the pressing need to help save the local bakery, can Marisa find her joy again at the end of the world?

Good series, iffy narrator

This is a good serious if you need some thing with a happy ending.The narration was pretty good except for the voice of Huckle. This narrator cannot and should not do American accents. Thankfully, Huckle was only a minor character in this one.

Overcoming obstacles has never been so charmingly told.

This book was a delightful story with vivid lovely characters and a story as old as time. Very enjoyable and charming.

Once again…

Once again Jenny Colgan shines a light on a difficult subject to explain. Depression that manifests itself slowly into agoraphobia and the slow road back if you’re lucky enough to have the help you need available to you. Fun to catch up with cast of characters we’ve come to love and to be reminded that no challenge is insurmountable with friendship, family and community.
