The Popular Romantic Fiction Award 2022

A forgotten house and a secret hidden for a century. Newly divorced, Theo buys Boatman’s Cottage and as she begins to bring the cottage and the gardens back to life, Theo pieces together a story of star-crossed lovers played out against the river, while finding her own path to happiness.

Novelist, wife, mother of three, slave to two cats and dreamer-turned-doer, Liz is an award-winning author of eight novels that have been published in fourteen languages, and has been dubbed ‘The Queen of the Contemporary Cornish Novel,’ by the Guardian. She was born in Massachusetts but is now based in Cornwall, where she spends her days writing, looking at the view from her study and plot walking – if not found procrastinating on Twitter.
