9780007302000: The Beachcomber

Another page-turning story of tragedy and triumph from the No.1 bestselling author of The Loner and The Journey. In the summer of 1952, two lonely people arrive in the pretty seaside hamlet of West Bay. Strangers coming from very different backgrounds, they are there for the same reasons: to find peace of mind and the chance to start a new life. Tom Arnold has abandoned all his possessions and walked away from a highly paid job. A year ago, he had a wife and two beautiful children, when suddenly his world was turned upside-down. The car he was driving with his family was deliberately run off the road high above the cliffs. He was the only survivor. The driver - who Tom is sure intended to kill them all - has never been found. Kathy Wilson has tried to cling on to her zest for life through times of pain and loneliness. Recovering from her divorce, she seeks comfort in the arms of other men. But a shocking, revealing row with her mother is the final straw, and when she inherits a rundown house in West Bay, she flees to Dorset. For both Tom and Kathy, it seems there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yet even now, someone means to undermine their search for happiness. People are jealous. And a brutal killer is still on the loose...Suddenly West Bay is no longer the peaceful place it seemed...

About the Author:

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.

From AudioFile:

Suffering the pain of loss, Tom Arnold and Kathy Wilson each arrive, for different reasons, in the quiet seaside village of West Bay, far from London. The year is 1952. They've not yet met, but they soon will. And with the ease and generosity of Carole Boyd's reading, the listener will succumb to the multifaceted story and happily travel through the hills and valleys of the ensuing romance. Boyd never lets up. As her musical speaking voice graces each character with its own persona, she exudes every essence of perfection necessary to being a great narrator. J.P.
