Peter Sherratt has taken a break from pantomimes to release two novels, River Song and Cornish Princess.
RIVER SONG is a gentle, romantic tale of rural England in the 18th century. It is set in a large country sporting estate in the ancient county of Cumberland, in the north of what is now Cumbria - the Lake District. It tells the story of Richard, a woodsman, born beside a river on the estate, a man at ease with himself and content with life.
The dramatic arrival of a girl and her baby changes everything. The story traces his life and loves from his humble beginnings to his rise, through fate, to the management of the entire estate.
eBook version is now available on Amazon Kindle.
CORNISH PRINCESS is a romantic novel set in the tiny Cornish west coast village harbour of St Pennard.
Mike Thompson is made redundant and, in a moment of desperation, goes to St Pennard intent on suicide.
Instead, he is captivated by its beauty and establishes a new life there, leaving behind the ambition of the rat-race. He settles into a simple lifestyle, immersing himself in the quiet pace of this idyllic setting.
The peace is disturbed by the dramatic arrival of Ellie, a young artist. Following the death of her fiancé, she comes to St. Pennard on her intended wedding day to put an end to her tragic love-life.
Mike rescues her and they find blossoming love and happiness, entwined in the peaceful life of this lovely village and the wonderful characters who live there.
Everything is perfect . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . then fate deals a joker from the bottom of the pack!
