The holiday home

Britton, Fern, author

Set on a Cornish cliff, Atlantic House has been the jewel in the Carew family crown for centuries. Each year, the Carew sisters embark on the yearly trip down to Cornwall for the summer holidays, but they are as different as vinegar and honey: Prudence, hard-nosed businesswoman and married to the meek and mild Francis, she is about to get a shock reminder that you should never take anything for granted. Constance, homemaker and loving wife to philandering husband Greg, has always been out-manoeuvred by her manipulative sibling. But now that Pru wants to get her hands on Atlantic House, Connie is not about to take things lying down

Description

Two sisters. One House. The holiday of a lifetime...

Each year, the Carew sisters holiday at Atlantic House, the family's Cornish retreat, but they are complete opposites. Prudence, hard-nosed businesswoman married to the meek and mild Francis, and Constance, loving wife to philandering husband Greg, who has always been outwitted by her manipulative sibling. Suspecting that Pru wants to get her hands on Atlantic House, Connie won't take things lying down. When an old face reappears, years of simmering resentment reach boiling point. Little do they know that a long-buried secret is about to be exposed. Is this one holiday that will push them all over the edge?
