Description

From the author of the #1 international bestseller The Orchid House, the mesmerizing story of two Irish families entangled by a tragic past that seems destined to repeat itself

To escape a recent heartbreak in New York, Grania Ryan returns to her family home on the rugged, wind-swept coast of Ireland. Here, on the cliff edge in the middle of a storm, she meets a young girl, Aurora Lisle, who will profoundly change her life.

Despite the warnings Grania receives from her mother to be wary of the Lisle family, Aurora and Grania forge a close friendship. Through a trove of old family letters dating from 1914, Grania begins to learn just how deeply their families’ histories are entwined. The horrors of World War I, the fate of a beautiful foundling child, and the irresistible lure of the ballet give rise to a legacy of heartache that leaves its imprint on each new generation. Ultimately, it will be Aurora whose intuition and spirit may be able to unlock the chains of the past.

Sweeping from Edwardian England to present-day New York, from the majestic Irish coast to the crumbling splendor of a legendary London town house, The Girl on the Cliff introduces two remarkable women whose quest to understand their past sends them toward a future where love can triumph over loss.

Customer Reviews

Ups and Downs

A good skeleton but bad writing. An overall good storyline that was, unfortunately, weighed down with choppy timelines, corny wording (if I had to read "ee-git" one more time, I was going to vomit), and characters that did not make me want to care a lot.

The Girl on the Cliff

Could hardly put it down. Loved the characters. Also read The Orchid House which was even better. Anxious for her next book which is to come out later this year.

Neatly packaged and predictable

This was a good read, but the plot was pretty typical and I felt the storyline and ending were a little too neatly packaged. Yes, it's a rather mysterious story and Aurora is a charming little girl. However, I would have enjoyed the book more had there been more mystery and without so much of the "Hallmark" feeling. I would read this author again only if the story was a bit more intriguing and realistic.
