I can't believe I can't remember the name of author of this one.

Character catches his wife unfaithful and leaves - changes to true self on the way and ends up in a small town by the sea. (something like Penistone?) Finds true love, lots of cats, inherits riches....

Yeah, I should know which one this is.

Thanks in advance.


Not Penistone but Penmarris!

Look at the wonderful stories of Susan Brown set in and around Penmarris. Wonderful characterisation, clever plots and comedy too.
Jealous? Moi?

Unfortunate Names

Penistone would be a truly unforunate name for the village. Unless they follow the maxim, "No publicity is bad publicity."

Well, there is one (isn't the internet wonderful)


Penistone (/ˈpɛnɪstən/ PEN-is-tən) is a market town and civil parish in the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, which had a population of 22,909 at the 2011 census.[1][2] Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is 8 miles (13 km) west of Barnsley, 17 miles (27 km) north-east of Glossop, 14.2 miles (23 km) north-west of Sheffield, and 29 miles (47 km) east of Manchester in the foothills of the Pennines. The highest point, Hartcliffe Tower, is 1,194 ft (364 m) above sea level and has views over the Woodhead bypass and the Dark Peak. The surrounding countryside is predominantly rural with farming on rich well-watered soil on mainly gentle slopes rising to the bleak moorland to the west of the town. Dry stone walls, small hamlets and farms surrounded by fields and livestock are synonymous with the area. The area is known for its rugged breed of sheep, the Whitefaced Woodland. The market town itself stands at its highest point around St Johns Church at around 250 m (820 ft) above sea level. However, the surrounding land rises well over 1,000 ft (300 m) towards Cubley and Thurlstone Moors and out towards smaller hamlets at Carlecotes, Victoria, Dunford, and Crow Edge, elevated at points above 1,200 ft (370 m). There are several vantage points that afford panoramic views of the surrounding areas of West Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.
