Book: Polly Williams - It Happened One Summer

If you’re looking for a fresh, undemanding and fun read Polly Williams’ latest novel fits the bill perfectly.

In this family drama Nell, a high-flying single mom and journalist extraordinaire, is stretched to the limit emotionally when she loses her job and is called back to her family home in Cornwall, England, to care for her elderly mother.

The trip to the muddy farmland is more frightening than ever as it means Nell has to deal with her dysfunctional family: a dotty mother who has always seemed distant, the lovable big brother who can do no wrong and her baby sister who is set to marry Nell’s ex.

How is the poor woman to cope with all this while trying to get her life in the big city back on track?

Add a mysterious stalker and you have all the ingredients for an intriguing and entertaining story.
