Marcia Willett delivers another powerful and touching tale of the importance of friendship and family in The Sea Garden.
Jess Penhaligon is on her way to Devon to receive an award for her botanical painting. Hosting her will be Kate, who gladly welcomes her into her home. Jess's own family fell apart several years ago, so she is grateful for Kate's friendliness —and her close unit of extended family and friends, who embrace Jess just as warmly.
As this group begins reminiscing on their pasts and sharing their stories with Jess, it becomes apparent that her family history may be linked with theirs. Long-buried secrets from past generations begin to be uncovered —but at what cost have they been kept hidden?
Journeys: all her life she's loved journeys. She climbs onto
the train, squeezes her way past other travellers, checking
her ticket against the labels on the seats, and swings her
small case onto...
Praise for The Sea Garden
“With agile inventiveness and cunning insight, Willett (Christmas in Cornwall, 2012) delicately explores the ephemeral nature of time and its effect on love and friendship.” —Booklist
“A satisfying multigenerational novel...Willett constructs a tangled web of past loves, lies and infidelities and then slowly straightens the threads, revealing how past events impact family members three generations later.” —Kirkus Reviews
