Victoria Walters: The second love of my life

Victoria Waltersin esikoisromaani löytyi kirjaston palautettujen kirjojen hyllystä, ja vaikka tekstissä on tyhjäkäyntiä ja tarina on höttöinen, onnistuu kirjailija myös sanomaan jotain omaperäistä: The second love of my life (Headline Review, 2016; ISBN 978-1-4722-2932-8).

A powerful tale of love, grief and survival, perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern, Lucy Dillon and Miranda Dickinson.

In the small Cornish town of Talting, everyone is known for something. Up to the age of twenty-four, artist Rose Walker was known for lots of things: her infectious positivity; her unique artistic talent; her second-to-none cookery skills; and, of course, her devotion to childhood sweetheart and husband Lucas. But, two years ago, all of that changed in one, unthinkable moment. Now, Rose is known for being a young woman who became a widow aged just twenty-five. Rose knows that life must - should - go on. But the prospect of trying to carve out a future for herself is one she can still barely entertain. Until a newcomer, Robert Green, arrives in Talting for the summer... Can Rose allow herself the chance to love again?

Get lost in Victoria Walters' immensely touching debut novel, and discover a world that will capture your imagination and heart.
