In April 1946 Michael, a soldier, returns, brutalised by war, and finds he cannot face the life that awaits him at home. Caught in a moment on a platform he leaps onto a train to the western tip of Cornwall, and in doing so changes his destiny. Finding himself in the bohemian colony of artists gathered on the Cornish coast after the war, his fate is shaped by his heart, his new environment and the fragmented Britain he has come back to. More than fifty years later, a man arrives in Norfolk to reluctantly claim his inheritance, a disused lighthouse, half hidden in the shadows of the past, now ready to cast its beam forward. At the helm of a successful business with a well-run existence, Kit is fairly certain he doesn't want to see anything the lighthouse's beam illuminates. But the choice is out of his hands. In a farmhouse, a woman falters in the middle of her life, and watches it run on like a film without her. Luisa is a semi-professional cook who inherits her flair for making magic with ice cream from her Italian family. She has lived through her children and now they are leaving home. The constant push and pull of family life has turned like the tide of the Norfolk sea, and she is suspended, without direction. When Kit and Luisa meet, neither can escape the consequences of that split-second decision made by Michael all those years ago. Moving between the post-war artists' colony around St Ives in Cornwall and present-day Norfolk, Raffaella Barker's new novel explores the secrets and flaws as well as the wholeness of heart that shape our interactions across generations. From a Distance is a nuanced and compelling story of human connection and the yearning desire we have to belong to something or someone.
