The Cottage at Rosella Cove
IN THE small, sleepy Australian coastal town of Rosella Cove there are three damaged souls and a house which stands empty. It's been like that for a long time.
Why isn't there anyone living in there? Why hasn't been sold?
Nicole arrives into Rosella Cove, leaving behind her city life for the little of Rosella Cove. She finds a old cottage by the water to rent. Nicole plans to keep to herself, but when she uncovers in the house a hidden box of wartime love letters, she realises she's not the first person living in this cottage to hide secrets and pain.
Ivy's quiet life in Rosella Cove is tainted by the events of World War II, with ramifications felt for many years to come. But one night a drifter appears and changes everything. Is his soul the one she's meant to save?
Charlie is too afraid of his past to form any lasting ties in the cove.
He knows he must make amends for his tragic deeds long ago, but he can't do it alone. Maybe the new tenant in the cottage will help him fulfil a promise and find the redemption he isn't sure he deserves.
Can the cottage help these lost, found and forgotten souls rewrite their futures.
