So the point of the Persephone Post is to keep our website refreshed and to give Persephone books a context. But it has another purpose, which is to cheer up our readers! And honestly we cannot think of anything better guaranteed to make them happy (apart perhaps from the puppy we are planning to acquire in September) than a holiday on the Roseland Peninsula (called thus because rhos was the Celtic word for heath or gorse). Get the train to Truro and a taxi (fifteen miles) to Broom Parc or Portloe (our guidebook called it ‘another dreamy Cornish fishing village’) where The Ship Inn or the Lugger looked good places to stay. And spend the days walking on the South West Coast Path. Nothing could be more heavenly.
