Having given up a high-powered job and the lifestyle to match, Tessa Hainsworth had no idea how hard she would struggle when, full of optimism, she fulfilled her dream of moving to rural Cornwall with her young family one September. In the first book Up With the Larks Tessa charted her first turbulent year with the Royal Mail, and her transformation from outsider to 'Posh Postie', adopted Cornishwoman and much-loved member of her new community.

In Seagulls in the Attic Tessa is now a pillar of the community, or so she thinks. Life is becoming hard for her and her family as they realise that being part of a small community is not quite the idyll she had been lead to believe, as lack of money and the demands of family life take their toll. But, as with the first book, Tessa finds the fun and resilience to turn all the hardships to her advantage - eventually.

The first book sold over 6,000 copies in hardcover and is rapidly becoming a must-read book for all those who hanker for an escape to the country.

Review:

"The narrative is full of stories of Hainsworth tending her allotment, charming the locals and enjoying scones with neighbours as she discusses the merits of goat keeping. You have to admire her determination to integrate herself in rural life" (Sunday Telegraph)

"There's something delightfully moreish about Tessa Hainsworth's pitter-patter account of her days... The pace is as slow as the tide, piqued with the odd gentle caper ... Still, there's something nurturing about letting each description roll over you like great, frothy Cornish waves" (Daily Mail)

"A warm-hearted escapist read which will be particularly enjoyed by anyone who has, like Tessa, dreamed of over-throwing their nine to five to set up home in a favourite holiday spot" (Western Morning News)

Book Description:

A warm-hearted, feel-good, laugh-out-loud funny story by a terrific natural writer. This is the second instalment of Tessa Hainsworth's escape from the rat-race with her actor husband to a Cornish seaside town.
