One minute, Rosie's life is secure, predictable and practical, just the way she has always wanted it to be... until it changes in a heartbeat when she finds out her husband has been having an affair with her best friend, forcing Rosie to alter her life dramatically.
She finds herself driving to North Cornwall, where she decides to rebuild her life. Seeing new sights, finding new friends and stumbling upon the surf scene and pagan rituals still very much alive in Cornwall, Rosie dares to believe she has launched herself down a slipway to success. The trouble is her old life has a way of finding her and following her, and nothing is ever as it seems.
Eddie refuses to believe the marriage is over and won't make it easy for Rosie to start again. So as she tries to pick up the pieces from her life and rebuild a new one, she asks is it possible to completely throw in the towel on your current life and start a new one?
Cornish Fudge is a novel of loves old and new shadowed by the sorrows and struggles of starting again, of relationships through which Rosie must test the limits of how near, and yet how far, we can come to breaking free of our past.
