But as the days pass he changes every one of them - and the time comes for his story to be told...Tender, lyrical and redemptive, `The Silver Dark Sea' is the dazzling new novel from the author of `Eve Green' (winner of Whitbred First Novel award).

Review:

`Quietly beautiful...poetic, dreamlike prose' Sunday Times`Susan Fletcher's prose shimmers like light on water, and she's equally adept at charting the emotions of her memorable characters ... Old resentments are revisited, dark secrets are revealed, while barricaded, shut-away hearts let in the possibility of love' Marie Claire`Fletcher is a powerful storyteller - full-blooded, a bit old-fashioned and with a knack for combining sensual narratives with a feel for ancient myth and natural landscape... Delicious, briny writing' Metro`Smooth, flowing and feminine, Fletcher's prose lulls you with its lyricism and emotional resonance... [a] fishy, mythical tale of love and loss and the depths that grief can reach' Herald
