The Secret of Angel Cove by Sheila Norton
‘I’ve woken up early. I really didn’t want to – today of all days, the first day of the rest of my life.’
After years working all hours as a senior practice nurse, Joy has taken a well-earned retirement. She’d been looking forward to it, to leisure and time and no alarms, but now that it’s happened, she’s not sure what to do with herself. Her husband Terry is buried in his business, and seems to be talking to her less and less – at home she feels, increasingly, rather in the way.
But when a new neighbour, Sara, and her small son move into their remote Devon village, Joy befriends her, and inspired by Sara starts to look into the history of their beautiful Angel cove. Joy’s quest brings her to new friends, old secrets and eventually unearths a history that belies their sleepy village . . .
