A Cornish Christmas Carol is a festive delight to enjoy with a hot cup of mulled wine, perfect for fans of Jenny Colgan and Karen Swan. Joy to the world? Not if Abigail Scorrier has anything to do with it. She's spent most of her adult life trying to avoid the festive frenzy. She loved Christmas as a child in Cornwall: the colourful stockings hanging above a crackling fire, the excitement of what will be waiting for her the next morning. But ever since her life took a heart-breaking turn, she's buried those memories and done everything she can to avoid her past, her family and most of all, the Christmas season. But on Christmas Eve, Abigail will have three visitors she can't ignore, and what they reveal about her past, present and future might just change her life - and mend her heart...

A heart rending story about secrets, lies and the power of love' Cathy Bramley Against the beauty of Cornwall, a story of two women struggling with their past: one cannot remember hers, the other cannot forget... When Hebe receives a life-changing diagnosis at only 53, she struggles to make sense of what it will mean for her, her job and the man she loves. With memories slipping away by the day, she flees to the one place she has always felt safe and peaceful - Cornwall, and the house her family spent so many summers in. Lucy is having her own crisis, and seizes the chance to follow her aunt to Cornwall. Curious about what has driven Hebe there after so many years, she also has to battle with the secret she has kept since her family's last summer there more than ten years ago.

Türkisblaues Wasser, raue Steilküsten, kilometerlange Sandstrände – der Sommer in St Trenyan/Cornwall hat einiges zu bieten. Leider ist Demi viel zu beschäftigt, um ihn zu genießen. Sie arbeitet als Kellnerin in einem kleinen Strandcafé, um sich und ihren Hund Mitch über die Runden zu bringen. Dann verliert sie ihren Job – und trifft Cal. Er hat ein Anwesen in der Nähe einer idyllischen Bucht geerbt. Das alte, baufällige Haus und das vernachlässigte Gelände will er in eine Ferienanlage umwandeln, und er braucht dringend Unterstützung. Auf einmal hat Demi wieder Arbeit. Und während sie gärtnert, Wände verputzt und Dachziegel anbringt, träumt sie von ihrem eigenen kleinen Café. Aber auch ihr neuer Chef beschäftigt sie – obwohl der es ihr nicht gerade leicht macht. Trotzdem fühlt sie sich zu ihm hingezogen. Wenn nur Cals Exfreundin nicht wäre, für die er noch Gefühle zu hegen scheint. Als Cal erkennt, was Demi ihm bedeutet, ist es fast zu spät ...

Theas Eltern wollen die ganze Familie zu Weihnachten nach Cornwall einladen, in ein großes Haus am Meer, dabei sind sie eigentlich dabei, sich zu trennen.

This will be one Christmas they'll never forget. Piran Ambrose is the epitome of brooding male. But Pendruggan's Mr Rochester is in danger of becoming its Ebeneezer Scrooge when he is driven to distraction by the villager's over-the-top Christmas celebrations. How could the cringeworthy amateur village production of Aladdin bring seasonal cheer to anyone, he wonders? And do the village children really have to arrive at his cottage door every single night in December with their terrible recorders and discordant singing? But when Piran's bad temper risks spoiling Christmas for everyone, something drastic needs to be done. So, over one Christmas Eve, three very special people pay Piran a visit, determined to show him what Christmas is really all about.

Peter Warlock is one of the several pseudonyms adopted by the critic, researcher, editor and composer, Philip Heseltine (1894-1930). Previous studies of Warlock have been almost exclusively biographical, using the pseudonyms as evidence of a split personality and applying this and other controversial aspects of his colourful life-style to an evaluation of his music.Brian Collins' refreshing new analysis of Warlock's output shows such approaches as often misleading. Focusing on key elements of Warlock's compositional techniques, such as his preoccupation with chordal material, Collins demonstrates that the early songs, often tonally adventurous and heavily influenced by Delius and van Dieren, are natural precursors to the more familiar later style. This later style is more suited to the contemplative and philosophical songs that make up the majority of his output.Nevertheless, Warlock has been criticized for writing 'all those songs about beer'; in analysing his choice of subject matter and the respect he accorded to the natural stresses of the texts he used, this book offers more penetrating insights into the composer's motivations and achievements. As such it is vital reading for those concerned with the evolution of British music in the early part of this century.
