A field, a perfect morning, a family destroyed in a single moment.

Every night, before he cuts the engine and lets the boat drift, Guy writes the diary of the man he should have been - of a husband with his wife and their young daughter; of a new family that may not have been perfect but who were, at least, together. And every morning, as he's rocked in his berth by the waves all around, he wakes to the memory of that fateful day and the knowledge that things can never be the same.

Embarking on a moving and eventful journey from the calm estuaries of East Anglia to the southern states of America and the storm-filled waters of the North Sea, Guy meets Marta and her daughter Rhona, who are on a life-affirming journey of their own . . .

“Beautiful...”

I have to admit that I had put off reading this book once I got it, as I feared that it may be depressing - the core of the story is after all, the death of a young child. However, I couldn't have been more... More

“The Wake”

This is an interesting book which did not turn out as I expected. It starts with the death of four-year old Freya, the daughter of Guy and Judy. But, instead of focusing on the immediate aftermath of the tragedy it... More

Written in 3 time lines, things that were, things that are and things that could have been, this is a book that could easily have become lost in it meanderings. But it doesn't. It is a lovely book dealing with... More
