    REVIEW ´ The Serpentine Cave The Serpentine CaveA light enjoyable story of a woman finally finding herself after the sudden death of her mother It is nicely written with well rounded characters and believable dialogueMost of all though I enjoyed the setting in Cornwall England I spent many childhood holidays there and mentions of Hayle Slapton Sands and Gwithian amongst others brought back happy memories The author must have spent a lot of time there too because her descriptions of St Ives and its surrounds are spot onRead for a challenge but it was still a few hours well spent

    REVIEW ´ The Serpentine Cave The Serpentine CaveI bought this book years ago in England to read on a train and loved it immediately Just finished rereading it and still love it The seaside atmosphere will appeal to almost every reader who lives or works by the ocean but may not appeal to others who aren't stimulated by the slightest whiff of salt sea air It's a story of a sort of an everyday English family who discovered a long last past when their mothergrandmother Stella dies and they never knew she was a prominent artist in her youth That discovery sets the three mother Marion son Toby and daughter Alice on a journey back to St Ives in Cornwall to discover her artistic heritage and find out her possible involvement in a famous incident involving a failed rescue at sea a fictionalized accou

    REVIEW ´ The Serpentine Cave The Serpentine Cave35 starsThere’s always a frisson of excitement when you come across a ‘new’ book by an author you like Jill Paton Walsh’s Knowledge of Angels is one of my all time favourite novels as many of you will probably know and so I was excited when J gave me this novel which he’d unearthed in a second hand bookshop and which I’d never heard of before It’s very different in spirit – a tale of uiet private truths rather than the epic resonances of Knowledge of Angel

    REVIEW ´ The Serpentine Cave The Serpentine CaveJust re read this tale of St Ives while sitting in my cottage behind Porthmeor Beach Jill Paton Walsh lyrically paints a verbal portrait of this small fishing village in the Serpentine Cave exceptionally popular with artists because of the extraordinary uality of its light Surrounded on two of it's three sides by the sea the air sparkles bouncing off the waves and over the townThis is the tale of a newly berieved daughter who speeds down to St Ives in an attempt to find out who is her father She's accompanied by her grown up son and daughter both with problems they leave behind in London And the tale turns into an emotional detective story with its roots in the true story of a famous St Ives lifeboat disaster I'm glad to have re read

    REVIEW ´ The Serpentine Cave The Serpentine CaveBeautifully written this is a literary sort of story but not a heavy one Outwardly the narrative is about family love and loss but it is rich in Cornish history and culture in particular the influx of artists into the town of StIves by the end of the 1930's in tandem with the depletion of fish to be caught and jobs to be had and there are plenty of references to the arts as well as the old traditions of the fishing life
