"To escape a recent heartbreak in New York, Grania Ryan returns to her family home on the rugged, wind-swept coast of Ireland. Here, on the cliff edge in the middle of a storm, she meets a young girl, Aurora Lisle, who will profoundly change her life. Despite the warnings Grania receives from her mother to be wary of the Lisle family, Aurora and Grania forge a close friendship. Through a trove of old family letters dating from 1914, Grania begins to learn just how deeply their families' histories are entwined. The horrors of World War I, the fate of a beautiful foundling child, and the irresistible lure of the ballet give rise to a legacy of heartache that leaves its imprint on each new generation. Ultimately, it will be Aurora whose intuition and spirit may be able to unlock the chains of the past. Sweeping from Edwardian England to present-day New York, from the majestic Irish coast to the crumbling splendor of a legendary London town house, The Girl on the Cliff introduces two remarkable women whose quest to understand their past sends them toward a future where love can triumph over loss."--P.

I really liked the various time periods this story covered. Some of the characters were outstanding, and their intertwining lives interesting. I like Lucinda Riley's writing, but I had an issue with the "misunderstanding" in the contemporary part of the story. Two people really love each other, they communicate, right? The heroine leaves and refuses to communicate; months go by, and finally when the truth comes out, you want to strangle the heroine! It was so simple to clear up the misunderstanding, which was cliche to boot. Why the hero wanted to have anything more to do with her, is beyond me. Extreme stubbornness does not make for a great heroine, in my opinion. ( )

This is a tale of complicated choices, tragedy and mental instability combined with all the bad luck life can throw at you. Told simply at the beginning, the emotional intensity of ‘The Girl on the Cliff’ by Lucinda Riley tightens and tightens like a old screw turned so hard it can’t be loosened. Until finally it gives way.
Visiting her family in Ireland, Grania Ryan is running from pain. She has just miscarried and is upset with her boyfriend, Matt, for an unexplained reason. At home she sees a young girl walking on the cliffs and is curious about her. Aurora Devonshire is eight years old, she lives in the big house beside the sea, raised by an accumulation of governesses, nannies and household staff during the absence of her father Alexander. Grania is transfixed by the child, but her mother Kathleen is worried by any contact made with ‘that family’. ‘The Girl of the Cliff’ is the story of three generations of women in the two families, their loves, losses, sacrifices, cruelties and grudges. And throughout it all runs the mystery of why Grania cannot return to New York to her grieving and confused boyfriend.
Does history repeat itself? Can bad luck be passed genetically from generation to generation? Are some people just unlucky? And are some families destined to be intertwined across the centuries? This story of the Ryan and the Lisle families includes troubled love, ballet, wealth, poverty and orphaned children. Will the worldly-wise Aurora figure out the connections? Riley keeps the secrets of her characters, revealing each titbit carefully so you want to read ‘just one more page’.

Heel mooi en aangrijpend verhaal over de liefde tussen ouder en kind. Weer goed geschreven en de overgangen naar het verhaal uit het verleden zijn netjes aangepakt. Nu is het wachten op het volgende vertaalde boek. ( )

Lucinda Riley has done it again. I so enjoyed this story of a woman's love for a child. I find adoption stories so moving and this one especially. The characters were wonderful and as usual the descriptions of Ireland were just beautiful. Highly recommend. ( )
