Publisher's Summary

A forgotten house and a secret hidden for a century....

Following the breakdown of her marriage, Theo has bought a tumbledown cottage on the banks of the river Tamar which divides Cornwall and Devon. The peace and tranquillity of Boatman’s Cottage, nestled by the water, is just what she needs to heal.

Yet soon after her arrival, Theo discovers a stash of hidden letters tied with a ribbon, untouched for more than a century. The letters - sent from the battlefields of France during WWI - tell of a young servant from the nearby manor house, Abbotswood, and his love for a woman he was destined to lose.

As she begins to bring Boatman’s Cottage and its gardens back to life, Theo pieces together a story of star-crossed lovers played out against the river, while finding her own new path to happiness.

The River Between Us beautifully explores the mystery and secrets of a long-forgotten love affair and will be loved by fans of Kate Morton.

Achingly beautiful story and lesson of strength and enduring love

A beautifully woven story of love and loss returning back to present day love and rediscovery of family. You’ll live this and love it and will return to it as I do. Thank you Liz a triumph, a beautiful book.

Not what I expected

What is a good plot is let down by unnecessary rambling, I found the main character is always breathless & sounding caught by surprise & all the other characters had the same butch voice, I was tempted to fast forward at times, I didn’t enjoy this book.
