Travel Guide



Cornwall is the homeland of the author and you can tell. Even though it’s the Cornish spirit that is on each and every page rather than specific locations, this is a Cornwall  novel through and through.

This time the author has delved deep into the spirit and history of the region. The story is told through three different time periods and this shows the war effort and the lasting effects of the fight through this most westernly parts of England.

Cornwall has a history and charm of its own and this book shows that.
