Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A glorious saga writer (do seek out her first Sea Music) with a tale that centres on a ship’s figurehead being restored in Cornwall, so you get a contemporary love story and the tale of the carver and model in New Foundland some hundred years earlier. It is the sort of book you just curl up and lose yourself in.

If you like Sara MacDonald you might also like to read books by Jojo Moyes, Rosamunde Pilcher and Marcia Willett.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Another Life by Sara MacDonald

Marine historian Mark Hannah finds a hauntingly beautiful figurehead in Newfoundland. He traces her ship, The Lady Isabella, back to a small port in Cornwall where he meets Gabrielle Ellis, the woman who is going to restore her to her former glory. Together they begin to trace jigsaw pieces of the lives of the carver, Tom Welland and the real Lady Isabella.

Gabrielle becomes increasingly haunted by Isabella's lost life. As Gabrielle's own life becomes inextricably involved with Mark's, her story runs parallel with the lives of Isabella, her husband Richard and Tom Welland, the carver.

Two women, living more than a hundreds years apart yet against the same wild backdrop of sea and landscape, make a rash bid for freedom to live another life. But for both of them, that choice means a loss which will greatly affect the next generation.

Reviews

Praise for 'Another Life' 'Intriguing themes are cleverly woven together...I found myself swept along by the sheer interest of every page and moved by the unerring way in which each character is painted...it grips to the end.
