Writing the most page-turning, warm and utterly enjoyable fiction out there, Veronica Henry’s profile continues to grow.


A gorgeous novel of secrets, love, heartache and dreams, set in Pennfleet, home of The Long Weekend. In a rambling house overlooking Pennfleet harbour, the Rashwood sisters, Eva and Rose, vied for one man’s heart, not realising he was playing a game with both of them: a game that ended in tragedy. Years later, Jemima Locke arrives in Pennfleet to become housekeeper to Eva and uncovers a story of passion and heartache: a story which provides a distraction from her own troubled past. Kit runs picnic cruises up and down the river in his grandfather’s boat but is starting to wonder if it’s time to move on, after a disastrous love affair becomes a local scandal. When his wife walks out leaving him to bring up their two small boys, Ollie is devastated. Did he make the worst mistake of his life bringing his family here, or can he make things right again? In the narrow cobbled streets that lead down to the harbour, the inhabitants of Pennfleet live out their hopes and dreams, with days bathed in golden sunshine and nights lit by a silver moon . . . Veronica Henry has worked as a scriptwriter for The Archers, Heartbeat and Holby City amongst many others, before turning to fiction. She won the 2014 Romantic Novel of the Year Award for A Night on the Orient Express.
