A Year Of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman 

PAGE 59 a-year-of-marvellous-ways

This is a story about Marvellous Ways, an 89 year old woman who sits by a creek in Cornwall, waiting for a last adventure.And it’s about Francis Drake, a young soldier who washes up there, reeling from war and broken-hearted.

It’s about the magic in everyday life and the lure of the sea, the healing powers of storytelling and sloe gin, and how we carry on when grief comes snapping at our heels.
