I just wish I had been on holiday in Cornwall when the weather was so good – in one place. I remember holidays when we chased the sun across the peninsula and others where we sheltered from the storms in a fish and chip shop. It is true, when the sun comes out, it can be the most magical place with wonderful landscapes and flowers – the gardens are spectacular.
This story was better written and with more content than so many of the Cornish fantasies. It had nice characters and we felt for Gertie when she got stuck in the mud and would have liked to have a tour sitting upstairs with tea and scones. I thought more could have been made about the various wonderful small towns and villages in the tour and was sad none of the stunning gardens were visited.
Overall a nicely written story in clear language.
