One Cornish Summer Publication Day Interview & Giveaway with Liz Fenwick (@liz_fenwick) @orionbooks

I am thrilled to welcome back Liz Fenwick and her sixth book One Cornish Summer to Sarah’s Vignettes today. I have another great interview with Liz to share with you and there are details of a fun giveaway Liz is running over on her social media pages.

I read One Cornish Summer back in March and found it beautiful and poignant (read my review here). I really hope it does well because it deserves to.

~ Publisher’s Description ~

Against the beauty of Cornwall, a story of two women struggling with their past: one cannot remember hers, the other cannot forget…

When Hebe receives a life-changing diagnosis at only 53, she struggles to make sense of what it will mean for her, her job and the man she loves. With memories slipping away by the day, she flees to the one place she has always felt safe and peaceful – Cornwall, and the house her family spent so many summers in.

Lucy is having her own crisis, and seizes the chance to follow her aunt to Cornwall. Curious about what has driven Hebe there after so many years, she also has to battle with the secret she has kept since her family’s last summer there more than ten years ago.

Both women will learn that memories live in our hearts and that sharing secrets can set you free… But can they find their way back to the things that are truly important to them?

Welcome back to Sarah’s Vignettes, Liz!! I’m delighted to have you answering more questions about One Cornish Summer, your writing, and Cornwall. Continue reading “One Cornish Summer Publication Day Interview & Giveaway with Liz Fenwick (@liz_fenwick) @orionbooks”

The Forgotten Summer by Carol Drinkwater (@Carol4OliveFarm) @MichaelJBooks

**I first published this post on an old blog site on 2 May 2016**

I wanted to share with you the best book I have read this year. The Forgotten Summer, published in February 2016, is the latest book from one of my favourite authors: Carol Drinkwater. DSC_0236

My initial idea for this post was going to be a detailed review of the book. I had read several good and in-depth reviews of The Forgotten Summer and thought, “I can do that. How hard can it be?” Well, as I put pen to paper, I struggled. It was not because I didn’t know what to say about the book. I loved this book and I could talk about it all day long. When it came to writing about it, I just didn’t know where to begin.
