1972. It is four years since Martha Ryan’s world crashed around her. Fleeing to England, she left everything behind. Her beloved seaside town of Rivers End, her big sister, Dorothy, and the one man she loves beyond reason.
She finds a new home in Ireland. A place so like her childhood home. There, she buys a cottage, embarking on a career as a teacher in the small town, and travelling the world every year. She finds friendships, relationships, and adventures.
But dreams haunt her. Deep down, she longs for her home town in Australia, and to see Dorothy. Will a life well lived be enough, or is one letter the turning point to risk everything she’s come to love?
'Martha' is a short companion story covering fifty years in about sixty pages. Best read after The Stationmaster's Cottage (or later Rivers End books).

Bought by mistake, cannot get E books. but I did get it in paperback. I enjoyed it as I do all your books.
I enjoyed it, as I have done with all your books that I have bought.
I was absolutely hooked with this book from the first page to the last with all of the twists and turns .. I would certainly recommend it and can’t wait for the next one .. thank you
I really enjoyed this book, set in my hometown of Melbourne. A really great story with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Liz is a great character and this book rounds out her story. I would highly recommend this and the previous book in the series.
I am still waiting for my copy of Lest Bridges Burn to arrive. Looking forward reading it.
Brilliant! Loved learning who Liz is and what makes her tick. This book was outstanding and the series is going from strength to strength. I couldn't put it down. Streaming services - pay attention!
Loved it so much i will read it again some time
