The Cornish Knot by Vicky Adin

The Cornish Knot

by Vicky Adin

This one is a fictional novel, but, she says, is an amalgam of stories she gathered while researching the family tree. Vicky's decided to call her stories The PastFinders series because they are all linked to stories about history, family, love and renewal.  

Every family has its secrets, its strengths and its weaknesses. What will we discover about our finders as they search their past? What will we learn about ourselves?

The blurb for The Cornish Knot says the story is about Megan, whose world is destroyed when her husband dies suddenly. Still grieving, she receives a mysterious package from Cornwall that jolts her out of her cloistered lifestyle. It contains a century-old journal. From her home in New Zealand she embarks on a journey of personal renewal to find her past, exposing secrets that change her life and involves the Italian art world. 

You can read more about it on Vicky's website - www.vickyadin.co.nz 

It's a great read. But don't just take it from me, read it yourself and decide.

It is available as a print book from me (just send me an email) for $25. Postage in New Zealand is complimentary. 

For overseas people, print on demand is available from Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/The-Cornish-Knot-Centuries-PastFinders/dp/0992262887/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_dnr_3

Or if you have a Kindle e-reader you can order it as an ebook from Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HHH7K8Y 
If you have a different e-reader you can also buy it as en ebook from Smashwords - https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/400992
I believe it costs about $5 to purchase an e-copy.

If you don't have an e-reader but would like to try, you can download an app from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000493771
You can then read the book on your computer, laptop, tablet, iPad and even your iPhone if you are so inclined. Technology is amazing these days!

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind.
