What other readers are saying about this title:
Carrie McClelland, an established author of historical fiction, arrives in a small coastal Scottish town to begin work on her next novel. She rents an old cottage from a local and settles in, welcomed with open arms into the village and simultaneously into the owner’s family. As she commences writing, the story seems to pour forth effortlessly from her fingers as though it were telling itself, and Carrie is both stunned and disturbed when, upon researching further some of what she’s written, she discovers names, dates and places that she thought originated in her own imagination were uncannily accurate.
I’d heard positive things about this book the past few years, but hesitated to pick it up, fearing an unsatisfying lack of substance given its "Romance" classification at the library. After reading it, I’d argue that it actually ought to be in general fiction, given that the plot would not cease to have meaning if not for the romantic elements of the story line. The Winter Sea is definitely a page-turner, the sort of book I began reading only on breaks at work, only to find myself toting it home as well, despite already having a book in progress there. I was sincerely disappointed when it ended, wanting more. Happily, it appears to be the first in a series, so I’ll be off very shortly to check out the next.
