The newcomer av Fern Britten

Det här är första engelska romanen på evigheter som jag läser. Jag trodde att jag skulle ha svårare att hänga med, då jag lyssnade i samma tempo (dubbel hastighet) på Storytel. De första sidorna var lite trixiga då jag var tvungen att ställa om språket, men sedan gick det galant. Berättelsen är spännande och driven, vilket såklart hjälper till.

Cornwall is only a page away in this gorgeous, heartwarming novel - a wonderful read for the Easter holidays! `A warm, easy read that depicts the joys of rural Cornwall' Daily Mail `The warmth and empathy that have made Fern Britton such a popular TV presenter are evident in her latest novel' Woman's Weekly `A charming story that is full of hope...will help put a spring in your step' The Courier `This is ideal holiday reading' Woman She arrived in the village on the spring tide and hoped to be at the heart of it, knowing its secrets and weathering its storms. It was to be a new beginning... It's springtime in the Cornish village of Pendruggan and as the community comes together to say a fond farewell to parish vicar, Simon, and his wife, Penny, a newcomer causes quite a stir... Reverand Angela Whitehorn came to Cornwall to make a difference. With her husband, Robert, by her side, she sets about making changes - but it seems not everyone is happy for her to shake things up in the small parish, and soon Angela starts to receive anonymous poison pen letters. Angela has always been one to fight back, and she has already brought a fresh wind into the village, supporting her female parishioners through good times and bad. But as the letters get increasingly more personal, Angela learns that the secrets are closer to home. With faith and friends by your side, even the most unlikely of new beginnings is possible.
