Why is she there? What is she thinking? What's the significance of the house on the cliff behind her? Well I can tell you that the woman on the rocks is Grace the protagonist of The House on the Edge of the Cliff For the answers to the other uestions you will have to read the book as I would certainly give away too much of the story hereWe first meet Grace in the present day at her idyllic villa close to Marseille Her step daughters and grandchildren are packing up to go home after their holiday Grace's grandson wanders off and she goes to find him When Grace does catch up with him it's not uite what she expects The start of the book really packs a punch and sets up the rhythm and tension for the whole book We then follow Grace's life loves and losses over 50 years I really enjoyed the historical elements to this story Like in The Lost Girl where Carol Drinkwater set the book around a pivotal moment in France's history the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks The House on the Edge of the Cliff is set around the Paris riots of May 1968 From the detail that goes into these scenes it is clear that Carol Drinkwater has researched this period to an inch of its life I learnt a great deal about France's history when I studied in Paris for 3 years so I really appreciate these parts of her books as well as the present day France It feels like coming home Another thing I enjoy about Carol Drinkwater’s storytelling is her ability to write as though she is looking down the lens of a camera capturing every aspect of the scene in front of her Each sound of a cicada perfume of a flower crack on the wall of the house is described so vividly I was transported to that moment
