' Immersive and affecting - I absolutely loved it! Escaping to the island setting was utter bliss. The love story is beautiful. . . It is escapism in the best possible way. ' - Marian KeyesCompelling, moving and teeming with feral desire: contemporary story of love and redemption set on a remote, windswept Scottish island from the bestselling author of Into the Darkest Corner and The Murder of Harriet Monckton. Rachel is at crisis point. A series of disastrous decisions has left her with no job, no home, and no faith in herself. But an unexpected job offer takes her to a remote Scottish island, and it feels like a chance to recover and mend her battered self-esteem. The island' s other inhabitants are less than welcoming. Fraser Sutherland is a taciturn loner who is not happy about sharing his lighthouse - or his precious coffee beans - and Lefty, his unofficial assistant, is a scrawny, scared lad who isn' t supposed to be there at all. Homesick and out of her depth, Rachel wonders whether she' s made another mistake. But, as spring turns to summer, the wild beauty of the island captivates her soul. For the first time in years she sees the hope of a better life - if only she can break the deadlock between two men who are at war with one another, and with themselves. ' An absolute gem. It' s up there with David Nicholls' One Day as an all-time favourite love story now. I can' t recommend this wonderful book highly enough. ' - Cass Green
This is escapism in the best possible way. You, Me & the Sea is such an immersive, affecting novel - I absolutely loved it! Escaping to the island setting was utter bliss. I can' t tell you how much happiness the descriptions of the sea, the sky and landscape brought me. The love story is beautiful, I cared so much about both of them. This book gave me a huge amount of comfort at a very tricky time. ' -Marian Keyes; ' You, Me and the Sea was perfect escapism and I felt like I was right there, feeling the salty air on my face on the Isle of Must. It is up there for me with David Nicholls' One Day as an all-time favourite love story now. I can' t recommend this wonderful book highly enough. It' s an absolute gem. ' -Cass Green
