Contents: Frankie Shaw is a single mum in pursuit of a fresh start. Moving from London to a small town in Norfolk with her two teenage kids will do them all good, she thinks, with dreams of seaside life filling her head. But the reality is harsher --
isolated and struggling with writer's block, she regrets her decision to move her family to a run-down town that sits uneasily alongside second homes and expensive boutiques. When she meets Scott, a wary Canadian on a work trip, it seems to be a turning point. But fate has a twist in store and the real turning point comes when tragedy strikes.
Responsibility: Freya North.

Over one short weekend, when Canadian musician Scott Emerson and British children's author Frankie Shaw meet by chance, a profound connection is made. Their homes are thousands of miles apart: Frankie and her children live by the coast of North Norfolk while Scott's roots lie deep in the mountains of British Columbia. Against all advice, they decide to see where this might go. Over oceans and time zones, they make sacrifices and take risks, discovering along the way new truths about love and family. For the first time in a long while, it seems life could be very good. But fate has a tragic twist in store, one that could destroy all that was hoped for."@en ;
