Christmas at the Beach Hut
By Veronica Henry
Read by Julia Franklin
A sumptuous, feel-good read about the real magic of Christmas: reconnecting with your loved ones.
When Ellen writes her annual Round Robin to send out with her Christmas cards, she realises it's all about the rest of her family. Fed up and exhausted by yet another year of singlehandedly trying to make it a perfect Christmas, Ellen takes a pile of books, her cosiest clothes and the Ocado order and escapes to a beach hut on the North Devon coast. This year, Christmas is going to be all about her and nobody else.
Meanwhile, the other inhabitants in the beach huts are trying to escape Christmas too. But somehow, the spirit of Christmas wheedles its way back into their hearts and Ellen is at the heart of the activity. By Christmas day there are fairy lights strung up round the beach hut and a turkey roasting on the barbecue.
So when Ellen's family track her down, just how will they convince her she means the world to them - every day of the year?
