  • A Marvellous Read

    The beginning while initially hard to get into was well worth persevering. Loved this tale of love and life with a slight mystical background.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I love this book! It is beautifully written. The story takes you from one moment in time and back again. Through the the sea of life the story rolls with the waves taking you and the characters with it.

  • Marvellous!

    This book is filled with imagery beautifully painted. It is filled with song, the harmonies and accompaniments to a melody in the key of life. These feelings can usually only be found in heart stirring poetry, yet they are found throughout this moving story written in prose. An old woman at the end of her life and a young man at the beginning of his. Young, broken Francis Drake comes into the old woman’s sphere of existence to deliver a letter, and finds deliverance for himself. Through her stories of her life and the beauty of nature surrounding them, he finds healing and purpose. The accompaniments to their melody and harmony are found in other people who are seeking their purpose and find it through their connections with each other. And at the center of it all, the old woman’s melody sings true and holds the life notes of everyone together until they are able to follow their own melody. This is such a beautiful and inspiring book and I recommend it to everyone.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Doesn't live up to her first book

    I LOVED When God Was a Rabbit. But I just feel like I couldn't get into this book. It was a slog for the first few chapters but about 20% in and I'm giving up. Which I almost NEVER do but I seriously have no clue what's even going on. I would love to read more by Sarah Winman in the future but this was a miss for me.

    Thanks for your feedback!
