The GCG Canon

There had to be a du Maurier – she captures the landscape with such poetry, a Pilcher for her story telling, but then what about Graham Winston’s Poldark Series or the modern tales of Ruth Saberton, Judy Astley and Emily Barr. Could I mention my own, ‘The Cornish House? Social media was no help. People were passionate. I only had time to read two of their selections before compiling the list…

Frenchman’s Creek – Daphne du Maurier ..magic, evocative

The Shell Seekers – Rosamunde Pilcher … a glorious immersive read

Notes From An Exhibition – Patrick Gale …beautiful

China Court – Rummer Godden … like a time capsule into the past

The Rose Garden – Susanna Kersley …divine time slip
