GLOWING READER REVIEWS

'Absolutely stunning' ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

'Beautifully written, it needs to be read slowly and savoured' ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

'A deliciously awkward and incredibly beautiful meeting of two souls' ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

'This book stole my heart' ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

'A wonderful book about love, grief, hope, belonging and compromise' ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

On the tiny island of Rokesby, Addie helps her mother run a women's retreat. Dreaming daily of escape, she consoles herself by swimming in the ocean that surrounds them.

On the neighbouring island, joined to Rokesby by a bridge at low tide, Sol has sought refuge at a wind-swept prayer house, grieving both his mother’s death and his father’s devastating betrayal. Alone and anxious, he takes comfort in birdwatching, books and the sounds of the sea.

Introverts with turbulent pasts and wary hearts, Sol and Addie are both drawn to nature far more than to people – until they catch sight of one another in the wild. Can they break free from past lessons in love to risk a better future together?

From the Costa-shortlisted author of THE OTHER HALF OF AUGUSTA HOPE and ALL MY MOTHERS, this is a beautifully observed and life-affirming novel about finding yourself, and then allowing someone else to find you.

Simply beautiful. I loved this author’s previous books so was thrilled to receive this review copy. However, I nearly missed out as the slow build up made me question if this one was for me. But it was! The slow unravelling plot line, which echoed both main characters lives, the intricate characterisation and the beautiful writing, revealed another five ⭐️ book. Thankyou to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to review this lovely book.

A lovely read - two misfits who meet one spring - both escaping their families and needing help. Addie is helped to escape from her mother on Rokesby by Sol but a series of events means that they then do not meet for another year during which they make decisions which complicate their future relationships. Sol is teaching in the Fair Isles and Addie sets up a wedding dress business in Norfolk.

A wedding dress brings them together again and they decide to start a ‘puffin’ relationship meeting in school holidays. Addie is not sure about love and letting herself draw near to anyone and Sol is still grieving the loss of his mother. Both learn from each other about relationships.

It is the third spring before they are in a place to make decisions about their future once both have found a way forward with their own families and their own insecurities.

A life affirming novel about finding love and allowing someone else into your life.

To be recommended.
