Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018

Lou has always dreamed of being a writer and relishes her time spent reading Agatha Christies in the grand Cardew House – which has stood empty for years. Her quiet world changes when the Cardew family return to Cornwall for the summer and Lou is swept up into the glamour of the 1920s with parties, romance and new friendships. Beautifully descriptive, Wood’s writing perfectly depicts the contrasting sleepy Cornish village atmosphere with the Gatsby-esque drama.

Description

A gorgeously dreamy coming-of-age romance set against a stunning
Gatsby-esque backdrop, this is perfect for fans of I Capture
the Castle and Eva Ibbotson.

Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer,
sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew
house which has stood empty for years. And when the owners arrive
for the summer – a handsome, dashing brother and sister – Lou
is quite swept off her feet and into a world of moonlit cocktailparties
and glamour beyond her wildest dreams. But, as she grows
closer to the Cardews, is she abandoning her own ambitions…
and is there something darker lurking at the heart of the Cardew
family?
