When Freya is offered a job caring for Kathleen in Heaven’s Cove, she jumps at the opportunity.  Heaven’s Cove is a quaint, quiet and beautiful seaside village.  One day Freya finds Kathleen crying while staring at a house on the cliffs above the village.  But Kathleen won’t tell Freya why she is so heartbroken.  Kathleen’s son Ryan isn’t happy that his mother is being cared for by a stranger.  Freya asks Ryan why his mother,  Kathleen, is so sorrowful.  He says no one knows why Kathleen breaks down every year on the same day.  Freya is determined to find out everything she can about Kathleen’s past and find out why she is so heartbroken.  Freya is faced with so many different decisions to make.  Each one having an overwhelming impact on so many lives.  

This was such a heart warming story of love and devotion to family.  I thoroughly enjoyed this addition to the series, although it can be read as a standalone novel.  This author has a wonderful way of vividly describing the village and makes it sound as if it would be a beautiful place to visit.  This was a wonderful addition to the series and I highly recommend it.  This story is brilliantly written,  completely captivating and hits all the emotions.  I absolutely loved it. 

Thank you Liz Eeles for yet another amazing addition to the Heaven’s Cove Series.  I always love returning to the beautiful Heaven’s Cove, quaint village by the sea.  I enjoyed this story very much and I highly recommend it.

The girl stands on the clifftop, feeling the soft breeze lift her shining red hair and dry her tears. She can almost hear Ireland calling her home across the wild sea. But she can never go back. And in that moment, she swears no-one will ever find out why.

Freya is desperate for escape from her messy break-up when she’s offered a job caring for elderly Kathleen in the seaside village of Heaven’s Cove. Kathleen’s once-red hair is now a brilliant white, but there’s always laughter in her Irish lilt – until the day Freya finds her weeping, her gaze fixed on Driftwood House, perched on the cliffs above the village. She refuses to say what’s wrong…

Kathleen’s son Ryan, quiet with striking emerald eyes, resents that a stranger is caring for his mother. But as Freya presses him for answers on a long walk across a windswept beach, Ryan finally admits that Kathleen breaks down in the same way, on the exact same day every year – never telling anyone what is causing her pain.

Finding a photo of Kathleen as a young girl standing outside Driftwood House years before she says she moved to the village, Freya is determined to find the source of Kathleen’s heartache. But as she gets closer to Ryan, and to the sad, forgotten history of the house, Freya is faced with an impossible decision…

Should she share this heartbreaking secret with Ryan and risk their chance of happiness together? And will facing the truth bring Kathleen peace in her final years – or will it tear them all apart?


Liz began her writing career as a journalist and press officer before deciding that she’d rather have the freedom of making things up as a novelist. 

Being short-listed in the Corvus ‘Love at First Write’ competition and the Novelicious search for a new women’s fiction star gave Liz the push she needed to keep putting pen to paper …. and ‘Annie’s Holiday by the Sea’ (her first published novel) is the result. 

Liz lives on the South Coast with her family and, when she’s not writing, likes to spend time walking by the sea, and trying to meditate. Her ambition is to be serene one day …. she’s still got a long way to go.
