Synopsis (author website)
Welcome to the place of new beginnings…
Why had the house stayed empty so long? Why had it never been sold?
Nicole has left her city life for the sleepy town of Rosella Cove, renting the old cottage by the water. She plans to keep to herself – but when she uncovers a hidden box of wartime love letters, she realises she’s not the first person living in this cottage to hide secrets and pain.
Ivy’s quiet life in Rosella Cove is tainted by the events of World War II, with ramifications felt for many years to come. But one night a drifter appears and changes everything. Perhaps his is the soul she’s meant to save.
Charlie is too afraid of his past to form any lasting ties in the cove. He knows he must make amends for his tragic deeds long ago, but he can’t do it alone. Maybe the new tenant in the cottage will help him fulfil a promise and find the redemption he isn’t sure he deserves.
Welcome to the cottage at Rosella Cove, where three damaged souls meet and have the chance to rewrite their futures.
A mystery but not crime fiction.
After I had so enjoyed THE KOOKABURRA CREEK CAFE I determined to read Sandie Docker’s second book and it did not disappoint.
Three stories come together and the reader finds the connections between them and the events that have brought their lives together.
A very enjoyable read.
My rating: 4.5
