LOVE IN THE SUN by Leo Walmsley


Email this review


There's an infectious charm about this warm story of a Robinson-Crusoe-year in a ruined fishing port of South Cornwall. A woman, while waiting for her divorce to go through, escapes civilization and importunate creditors, in a hide-away, with the man she loves. They start from scratch; renovate a tumbledown hut, start a garden, fish for their meals, and earn a bit of cash by collecting specimens for a marine laboratory. Meantime, he writes the book he has longed to write, and eventually it earns enough to clear their debts and to bring them security for the raising of the child she bears him. A quiet story, without much incident. Not much chance for sales, but a good many people will like it if it is called to their attention.
