From a distance by Raffaella Barker( Book )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 307 libraries worldwide
In April 1946 Michael returns from war and finds he cannot face the life that awaits him at home. Impulsively he leaps on a train to the western tip of Cornwall, and in doing so changes his destiny. He finds himself in a bohemian colony of artists gathered on the Cornish coast, and his fate is shaped by his heart, his new environment, and the fragmented Britain to which he has returned. More than fifty years later, a man arrives in Norfolk to claim--reluctantly--his inheritance: an abandoned lighthouse, half hidden in the shadows of the past, now ready to cast its beam forward. Kit, a successful businessman, is fairly certain he wants no part in this legacy. In a farmhouse, a woman falters in the middle of her life. Louisa's children are leaving home and the constant push and pull of family life has turned like the tide of the Norfolk sea--she is suspended, without direction. When Kit and Louisa meet, neither can escape the consequences of Michael's split-second decision all those years ago. Moving between the postwar artists' colony in Cornwall and present-day Norfolk, Raffaella Barker's new novel explores the secrets and flaws that can shape generations. 'From a Distance' is a nuanced and compelling story of human connection and our desire to belong

Green Grass is a hilarious tale of bad-tempered goats, sharp-eyed teenage twins, art-world excess and frantic text messages - and of a woman's yearning for the vivid expression of life that only the countryside makes possible. When teenage Laura Sale turned down Guy Mildmay's marriage proposal, she had no inkling that their paths would cross again. She'd wanted to spread her wings, Guy to remain a Norfolk farmer. But when, years later, they meet in a chic London organic restaurant, Laura is at a turning point. Disillusioned with her city life she finds herself drawn back to the countryside of her childhood holidays. Guy revives powerful memories - and could Laura ever work things out with the often-infuriating, supremely urban Inigo
