The Farm at the Edge of the world is warm, tender and full of humour and deeply moving. An assured and very affecting piece of storytelling. -- Lucy Robinson A sweeping love story, earthy and passionate, whipped along by the Cornish sea winds. Wonderful -- Eve Chase A rich family saga told with an intensity that echoes du Maurier -- Kate Saunders * Saga Magazine * A great read about guilt, atonement and identity * Hello! * Exquisitely written . . . a truly pastoral novel - sharp, sometimes painful, but authentic with real emotional depth. -- Veronica Henry Sarah Vaughan's beautifully-written second novel establishes her as a compelling storyteller, weaving the two strands of Cornish farming past and present into an honest, visceral love story. -- Rebecca Mascull The characters are engaging, the plot nuanced and satisfying. I was blown away, to be honest, finishing the book in one greedy gulp. Highly recommended! -- Sarah Jasmon, author of The Summer of Secrets A big-hearted story, and one that's full of love for the Cornish landscape. With the convincing detail about farming life, and intriguing past and present storyline, The Farm at the Edge of the World thoroughly transported me to the far western wilds, and made me very reluctant to leave again. -- Emylia Hall, author of The Book of Summers A gorgeously evocative love letter to Cornwall and an unputdownable story. I devoured it. -- Katy Regan Sarah Vaughan not only writes beautifully but her stories and characters have a way of climbing into your heart and staying there long after you've turned the last page . . . Highly recommended! -- Fleur Smithwick A wonderful book about love and loss through the eyes of three generations of Cornish women. Lovable, flawed, and so very human, each character had me rooting for them right until the very end. But it was the setting on the north Cornwall coast that makes me love this book: the weather, the seasons, the landscape, the house are all written so vividly that I could step into that place and instantly know my way around. -- Claire Fuller Heartbreaking * Woman Magazine * An evocative and page-turning story of love and heartbreak, written in beautiful and poignant prose that captivated me from first word to final page -- Katie Marsh Absolutely loved it. Very rare I sit and devour 220 pages in one afternoon. -- Nina Pottell You won't want this one to end * Marie Claire * A beautifully evocative story of love, loss and forgiveness. You can taste, feel, see and hear Cornwall on every page as the characters pull you into their lives. Loved it. -- Liz Fenwick [A] fabulous sense of place and a clever, compelling story * Woman & Home *
