Synopsis

To an outsider, Cassandra Shaw's life looks perfect. She lives in a beautiful, luxurious house in the English countryside, with a handsome, wealthy boyfriend who insists she needn't do a day's work in her life. But Cassie knows that something is not right. Her boyfriend has grown colder, treating her more like a housekeeper than a future wife. And her time feels empty and purposeless.



Cassandra has always been riddled with insecurities and self-doubt, but, just for once, she decides to take a chance on a new beginning. She answers an advert for a live-in nanny, dogwalker, cook and all-round 'Superhuman' for a family living in a rambling manor house on the rugged North Cornish coast. The work is hard and tiring, but Cassie has never felt so fulfilled.



As Cassie learns to connect with the natural beauty unfolding around her, Cornwall starts to offer up its secrets. Soon, Cassie starts wondering if she was drawn to this isolated part of the coast for a reason. Why was she guided to Foxcombe Manor? What are the flashes of light she sees in the valley? Is it her imagination or does someone brush past her? And who is the mysterious man living deep in the woods?



A beautiful romance with a hint of ghostliness, Beneath Cornish Skies is for anyone who has ever longed to start their lives again.

Originally from the Home Counties, Kate now resides in the diverse and inspirational county of Cornwall, which provides a glorious backdrop for much of her writing. Her career has encompassed travel, property and publishing and she currently divides her time between selling fabulous country piles that she can't afford and writing romantic suspense. Together with her ever-supportive husband, a gorgeous Arab horse and a newly acquired 'rescue' cat called Ollie, Kate lives in the beautiful Tamar Valley in a 200 year old cottage that she (and said husband) painstakingly restored and which proved the inspiration for her third book with Aria.

Customer Reviews

One to get your senses tingling! Different, and most enjoyable. Cassandra lives a very privileged life, but becomes aware that she is paying a heavy price for it. Her boyfriend treats her coldly and she realises that she has lost her self-respect. With no relatives around, she gathers her confidence and answers an advert for a 'Girl Friday' to a family in Cornwall. Settling in quickly, Cassandra relishes the feeling of satisfaction that each new day brings but she is aware that there is something other-worldly on her periphery. The first thing to attract me to this novel was the author's name; Kate Ryder can always be depended upon for a good read. This, her latest novel, has a wonderful cast of characters, an excellent story with enough of a touch of magic realism to be believable but not so much as to freak me out. Add in children, animals, a sprinkling of romance and a bit of doubt as to where it's all heading and you have an interesting read. I thought that using different derivates of the lead character's name in each part of the story admirably emphasised the changes in her life. Every bit as good as I expected it would be and a book I definitely recommend. Four stars!
