Martha by Phillipa Nefri Clark



Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

1972. It is four years since Martha Ryan's world crashed around her. Fleeing to England to
study teaching, she left everything behind. Her beloved seaside town of River's End, her
big sister, Dorothy, and the one man she loves beyond reason.

She finds a new home in Ireland. There, she buys a cottage, embarking on a career as a teacher in the small town, and travelling during every long school holiday. She finds friendships, relationships, and adventures.

But dreams haunt her. Deep down, she longs for her home town in Australia, and to see
Dorothy one last time. Will a life well lived be enough, or is an unexpected letter the turning point to risk everything she's come to love?

Martha is a short prequel to The Stationmaster's Cottage. Read first, or alongside any of the books in the series.
