Poppyland Summary

Poppyland by Raffaella Barker

POPPYLAND is a love story. It is about two people who fall for each other through a series of coincidences. Ryder James meets Grace Hart the night her exhibition of paintings opens in Copenhagen. Both of them are loners, damaged by tragedy in their lives, both sceptical about love. But they have a connection that can't be broken, which takes them from their separate lives to Norfolk, where they both end up at the same time, bound together by a family event that neither of them knew the other was connected with. Romantic, absorbing and quixotic, this love story for difficult people is a testament to the power of attraction. It's about the sea and land, about the past and how it shapes our futures, about how we find the right person to be with - a truly universal story.

Poppyland Reviews

'Both lyrical and real, light and darkly full of yearnings for a profound and lifelong love' -- Good Housekeeping 'A modern-day Brief Encounter... Barker's writing is so acutely-observed that the story of Grace and Ryder is utterly convincing.' -- Daily Express 'Barker is drawn repeatedly to the wheeling desolation of the Norfolk coast -- this vivid evocation leaps off the page, as do delightful snapshots revealing the hot-breathed collision of family life.' -- Independent
