Cornwall has the most beautiful landscape you could wish to set your eyes on, made still more dramatic with the evening silhouette of St Michael’s Mount in the background.
That was exactly the view Lori and his Cornish wife, Irene, had as they took over the tenancy of their first public house in the village of Portscatly: a beautiful village with many lively characters, each with their own little story to tell. Jean’s story will tug at your heartstrings, whilst Steve’s tragic tale will show you that a moment of madness can change your life forever. Typical families and friends keep village life moving.
The landlord’s foreign name has not gone down too well with the crowd. “It’s enough to make a man curse,” some would say. “And now they are taking over our pubs too,” some others would say.
So will Lori and Irene win over the locals, as they tirelessly try to get involved with the local community?

Lori Crasnich was born in a village called Torsa, in northern Italy, in 1951. In 1955, his family came to England, settling in Birmingham.
In 1977, on a whim, he moved to Cornwall and worked as a waiter, where he met his Cornish wife, Maureen. They were in the pub trade for 15 years and married for 20 years, before their marriage broke up.
Lori is now living back in Birmingham, happily married to his new wife Phyllis. He has always enjoyed writing poetry and short stories, since the early ’eighties. He goes with the theory that we all have a story inside us, ‘screaming’ to get out.
