9780007150731: Sea Music

A beautifully written novel with great emotional appeal, of family secrets and wartime heritage, set in Cornwall, London and Warsaw.

The house and the cottage overlooking the sea, on the corner of the big estate, was home to three generations of the Tremain family. Fred Tremain, the country doctor who – with his wife, Martha, for whose sake he had become estranged from his family – came first to this beloved corner of England: Anna, the difficult, determined older child, now a highly successful solicitor; and Barnaby, the easy-going second child, now a vicar to the parish: and the beloved granddaughter, Lucy. It is she whose discoveries of family papers, hidden in the old cottage, brings to light the first of the wartime secrets and begins the process of questioning so many old fears and hatreds, and unlocking the way to new relationships and new loves.

Sara Macdonald has created a wonderful range of characters, depicted with great tenderness and understanding, against a background of the human price paid for the upheavals caused by prejudice, violence and wars today and yesterday. A wonderful novel for all the fans of Anita Shreve, Niall Williams and Rosamund Pilcher.

Review:

Praise for Sea Music

‘A beautifully written tale.’ Belfast Telegraph

'Thoughtful and compelling storytelling' Choice

‘A multi-layered, moving story told with compassion’ Cornishman

‘Beautifully crafted’ Cornwall Today

‘MacDonald’s characters are portrayed with great tenderness and understanding’ Liverpool Daily Post

‘a tender story about three generations of a family touched by prejudice, violence and war.’ Woman’s Own

From the Back Cover:

The house opposite the church, overlooking the Cornish coast, is home to three generations of Tremains.

Fred Tremain, the country doctor, came to this beautiful corner of England with his wife Martha. Difficult and determined Anna, their eldest child, is now a successful barrister and their easygoing son Barnaby is a vicar to the parish. Also making her home there is Lucy, their beloved granddaughter.

And it is Lucy whose discoveries of family papers, hidden in the old attics, brings to light the first of the long-hidden secrets. As each layer is unwrapped, the family start to question the price paid for the upheavals caused by violence, wars and prejudice today and yesterday and unlock the way to new relationships and new loves.
