The House on the Edge of the Cliff [9781405933346]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Carol Drinkwater's epic story of enduring love and betrayal, from Paris in the sixties to the present day

No one else knows what happened that summer. Or so she believes.

Grace first came to France a lifetime ago. Young and full of dreams of adventure, she met two very different men. She fell under the spell of one. The other fell under hers.

Until one summer night shattered everything.

Now, Grace is living an idyllic life with her husband, sheltered from the world in a magnificent Provencal villa, perched atop a windswept cliff. Every day she looks out over the sea - the only witness to that fateful night years ago.

Until a stranger arrives at the house. A stranger who knows everything.

The past and present spectacularly collide in this gripping story of love and betrayal echoing across the decades . . .

Praise for Carol Drinkwater:

'Secrets, tragedy, hidden pasts and family secrest all set in glorious Provence - I loved this' Santa Montefiore

'This is a story to savour, complete with wonderful settings stretching from Paris to the glorious countryside of southern France' Dinah Jefferies
