Summer in Tintagel

Summer in Tintagel

by Amanda James




Journalist Rosa Fernley's dying grandmother, Jocelyn, has told her a secret—in the summer of 1968, fleeing a bullying husband, she visited the mysterious Tintagel Castle. Jocelyn wasn't seeking love, but she found it on the rugged clifftops in the shape of Jory, a local man as alluring as the region itself. But she was already married, and knew her husband would never let her go. Now she begs Rosa to go back to Tintagel. Rosa is reluctant—she has a job and a deadline that won't wait. Nevertheless, she agrees to go. Once in Tintagel, Rosa is challenged to confront secrets of her own. Will the past remain cloaked in tragedy, sadness, and the pain of unrequited love? Or can Rosa find the courage to embrace the secrets of the past, and give hope to the future?

About the Author

Amanda James
Amanda James grew up in Sheffield but her dream was to eventually live in Cornwall. Having now realised that dream, the dramatic coastline around her home inspires her writing and she has sketched out many stories in her head while walking the cliff paths. Known to many as Mandy, she spends far more time than is good for her on social media and has turned procrastination to a fine art. Amanda has written many short stories for anthologies and has four published novels. Two are about a time travelling history teacher, A Stitch in Time and Cross Stitch, two are suspense - Somewhere Beyond the Sea and Dancing in the Rain. Amanda left school with no real qualifications of note apart from an A* in how to be a nuisance in class. Nevertheless, she returned to education when her daughter was five and eventually became a history teacher, though she never travelled through time, apart from in her head. When Amanda is not writing she can be found playing on the beach with her family or walking next to the ocean plotting her next book.
