The desolation and grief Ellen felt at the sudden death of her beloved husband Nick wouldn’t leave her. She’d shut herself away, unable to face each day and even with her daughter Louise and best friend Tracey doing their best, it seemed nothing would lift her spirits. Until an old friend from Ireland, Gerry Clancy arrived unexpectedly to visit his son in Adelaide, and called to see Ellen in Port Lincoln while he was in Australia.

Gerry had been more than just her good friend, and his arrival found Ellen slowly rising from the depths of grief. The blast from the past was wonderful therapy – but would Gerry’s visit cause problems for Ellen? His visit was short – soon he was gone, heading to Adelaide then back to Ireland. There was heartache, anger and uncertainty left in his wake – what was Ellen to do? Could she find happiness again?

Leaving Ocean Road is Aussie author Esther Campion's debut novel, and is set mostly in Port Lincoln in South Australia; also in Santorini in Greece and Cork in Ireland. A heartwarming, poignant story filled with emotion; hope, heartache, loss and love – of learning to live again when your heart is broken. A lovely, warm read which I highly recommend.
