Polperro, Cornwal, England


The author explains about her fictional setting –

“White Cliff Bay is a completely made up place but I did visit Polperro in Cornwall while I was writing Summer at Rose Island and it had a lot of similarities to how I imagined White Cliff Bay would be”

White Cliff Bay

“Her love for the sea had been with her as far back as she could remember, but it was here in White Cliff Bay on many childhood holidays staying with her aunt that her love had blossomed. Swimming in the sea every day, she spent her evenings reading every non-fiction book about the water and its wildlife she could get her hands on. Her aunt had taken her scuba diving when she was twelve, opening up a whole other world she had never known before. The sea was in her blood. Coming back here felt like coming home.”
