The Summer That Changed Us: The brand new uplifting and escapist read from the Sunday Times bestselling storyteller Kindle Edition
The new feel good read about three women searching for friendship in a sparkling seaside town, from your favourite storyteller Cathy Bramley
'An emotional tale of friendship. This is Cathy at her very best' Sarah Morgan
'A wonderful story about how friendship gets you through hard times' Katie Fforde
The sparkling seaside village of Merle Bay, with its beautiful beach scattered with sea glass, is a place where anyone can have a fresh start.
For Katie, it is the perfect hideout after a childhood trauma left her feeling exposed. For Robyn, the fresh sea air is helping to heal her scars, but maybe not her marriage. For Grace, a new start could help her move on from a heartbreaking loss. When they meet on Sea Glass Beach one day, they form an instant bond and soon they're sharing prosecco, laughter - and even their biggest secrets...
Together, the women feel stronger than ever before. So can their friendship help them face old fears and find happy endings - as well as new beginnings?

From the Publisher
Hello dear reader!
Of all the books you could have chosen, you chose mine and I’m very grateful, so thank you!
While you’re here, I thought I’d take the opportunity to tell you a bit more about myself. I was brought up in Birmingham, but now live in a pretty little village in Nottinghamshire. Our two daughters have flown the nest (although there still seems to be a lot of clutter in their rooms), but we love having country walks on our doorstep, as does Pearl, our dog.
Despite being slap-bang in the middle of the country I LOVE the sea and visit the coast as often as I can. Waking up to the sound of waves is probably one of my favourite things, along with going to the cinema, cooking for friends, and finding the perfect dress (an endless quest, but still, I try).
I’ve always been a fan of reading, but I didn’t turn my hand to writing novels until 2013 and I haven’t looked back. I write about love, family, friendship and community, and how life can be so much brighter when people look out for one another. The pages of my books are stuffed full of women who are determined to make the best of the hand they have been dealt, and the sort of women I’d be proud to call my friends.
My novels can be read as standalone stories, but now and again, you’ll see people and places crop up from previous books. For example, readers of My Kind of Happy will recognise the florist’s and several of the customers from reading The Lemon Tree Café and A Patchwork Family. Well, that’s enough from me for now, I’ll leave you to enjoy your book in peace; I hope it brings you happiness!

Set in the North East Coast, this is the story of three women: Katie, Robyn and Grace and the friendship that developed between them, despite age and background.
It is also a story of hope and triumph in the most difficult and challenging of circumstances. And how each woman supports the other to find the sun behind the darkest of clouds.
Cathy has yet again written a novel that brings hope to us all. It is a book that made me smile and believe in the power of friendship. It is well written and obviously well researched.
I highly recommend it.
This was an easy read, but very fulfilling and I would love to see what happens next in the lives of Katie, Robyn and Grace, such as the relationship between Grace and her sister and her burgeoning new romance with Ned. I love all Cathy Bramley's work and this really does not disappoint!
