In the summertime

20 years after Miranda's family sold their holiday home in Cornwall, she, her two children and her mother are back to scatter the ashes of her step-father Jack on the sea, according to his dying wish. What she doesn't expect is to find that fisherman Steve, her first serious romance, is now a successful entrepreneur and living in the village. Trying to jolly along her grieving mother, squabbling children and her young sister Harriet who is running away from the tabloid press, Miranda isn't likely to have a relaxing time

Now she's back again - with her mother Clare and the ashes of her stepfather Jack, whose wish was to be scattered on the sea overlooked by their one-time holiday home.The picturesque cove seems just the same as ever, but the people are different - more smart incomers,fewer locals, more luxury yachts in the harbour. But Miranda and Clare both find some strangely familiar faces, and revisit the emotions they both thought had disappeared.
