The Beachcomber Summary

The Beachcomber by Josephine Cox

One of the country's bestselling storytellers joins HarperCollins with her new page-turning drama about struggle and triumph over adversity.

The Beachcomber is the story of two people, each with a dream, each lonely in different ways, and just when everything seems to be coming right for them, fate steps in to turn their worlds upside down.

In the summer of 1952 two people arrive in the pretty seaside hamlet of West Bay, Dorset to start a new life. Kathy Wilson dreams of turning the derelict Barden House into a home free of the pain she suffered back in London. As the summer stretches before her, she watches her cherished dream take glorious shape - though she grows curious about the lonely wanderer who strolls the beach below her window day and night. His name is Tom Arnold. He also seeks refuge in West Bay, needing a place to hide when the life he knew was brutally destroyed by tragedy. Drawn to this aloof loner, Kathy feels a bond forming that will radically change them both. But the shadows and secrets that haunt Tom and Kathy will not easily be dismissed. And as two wounded people try to find the courage to open their hearts to love, the past threatens their fragile new beginning...

About Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the `Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
