These Blue Remembered Hills
Sometimes, the only way out of heartbreak is to go straight through.
Mollie Purslow’s peers are keen to escape the small, English village of Marris Mynd. Only Mollie wants everything, and everyone, to remain the same. At her farm high in the beautiful Shropshire hills, Mollie aims to carry on with her late father’s passion for farming and creating artisan cheese. But her life begins to crumble when her boyfriend, Rhys Davies, decides to forge a new future – without her. Following the break-up, Mollie’s childhood friendships dissolve, and her livelihood is threatened, leaving her family at a loss as to how to help her through the darkness that engulfs her. With the unlikely support of an aristocratic young man, an annoying but ever-loyal sister, and the motivation of her dreams, Mollie must persevere past her heartbreak.

It was the week that changed everything. Annie Sutton’s life is unraveling when she accepts an assignment as a costume seamstress at Rysdonne Priory, a magical country house in England’s wild and beautiful Devon. Although her parents have irreparable problems and the love of her life is on a different continent, Annie holds fast to her own dream of domestic bliss. But complication arises when Annie meets handsome Will St John, just as her long-awaited plans are falling into place. Against the backdrop of a theatrical production and a cast of characters that seem equally dramatic off-stage, Annie discovers that she’s been betrayed, and must escape the tangled dilemma she’s fashioned for herself. Heartwarming and richly textured, Summer Theatre takes readers on a personal journey of first love, lost love, and the love that will carry on through a lifetime. Readers of Marcia Willett and Rosamunde Pilcher’s shorter novels will enjoy Michele Deppe’s perceptive rendering of endearing characters, idyllic settings, and serene storytelling.
