Author Liz Fenwick shares her recommendations for the Cornish Reading Challenge.
The Cornish Reading Challenge, running from the 5th of March until the 9th of May, aims to promote reading and Cornwall, arguably the best county in Britain. Liz Fenwick, author of several books set in Cornwall, including A Cornish Stranger, shares her recommendations below to give you some ideas.
I absolutely loved Not Forgetting the Whale by John Ironmonger, set in the fictitious Cornish Village of St Piran. I loved the book so much I gave it to my husband to read and he loved it too (we don’t normally share books – completely different tastes). My middle son is now reading it and loving it.
Frenchman’s Creek and Jamaica Inn are my two favourites from Daphne Du Maurier.
Jill Mansell’s Unpredictable Consequence of Love is set in a fictional version of St Ives and a wonderful escape.
Rummer Godden’s China Court is a delicious read set in Cornwall.
Harnessing Peacocks by Mary Wesley.
The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher
Notes On An Exhibition by Patrick Gale
Of course Winston Graham’s Poldark
I could keep going….
