Come to Cornwall via fiction

Cornwall is a fabulous destination, loads to do and see and beautiful scenery: from the 2* Michelin Restaurant Nathan Outlaw at Rock, the Eden Project to the Belly Boarding Championships, and so much more.... Whether you have been there as a visitor and want to rekindle memories, or whether you are an armchair reader who wants to take yourself off to this fabulous part of Britain. Just pick up one of our suggested novels and transport yourself to this dazzling part of the country.

Click on the cover of the book for more information. Available to purchase through TF or from your local bookshop.

Claire Marlowe owns 'The Townhouse by the Sea' with Luca, the hotel's charismatic chef. She ensures everything runs smoothly - until an unexpected arrival checks in and turns her whole world upside down.
And the rest of the guests arrive with their own baggage. There's a couple looking for distraction from a family tragedy; a man trying to make amends for an affair he bitterly regrets . . . and the young woman who thinks the Cornish village might hold the key to her past.
Here are affairs of the heart, secrets, lies and scandal - all wrapped up in one long, hot weekend.

Barnaby is visiting a parishioner, 20-year-old Lenny, who is confined to a wheelchair following a rugby injury. Lenny doesn't want him there for a chat; he wants him there while he kills himself, drinking a sedative bought on the internet. The "goodness" of Barnaby's behaviour, calmly administering extreme unction rather than scrambling for the telephone, is left deliberately ambiguous. It's a foolish reader of Gale's novels who rushes to judge one of his characters: the careful management of our sympathies is what he is all about.
"Patrick Gale has used the beautifully dramatic countryside of Cornwall as the backdrop for this tale of good and not so good"

When artist Maddie inherits a house in Cornwall shortly after the death of her husband, she hopes it will be the fresh start she and her step-daughter Hannah desperately need.
Trevenen is beautiful but neglected, a rambling house steeped in history. Maddie is enchanted by it and determined to learn as much as she can about its past. As she discovers the stories of generations of women who've lived there before, Maddie begins to feel her life is somehow intertwined within its walls.
"This is a wonderful picture of Cornwall - with romance thrown in"
