From the author of the Richard and Judy bookclub pick The Book of Summers comes a captivating, moving novel of love and family which will sweep you away to the beautiful coast of Cornwall.

In a remote Cornish cove, on one of the last days of summer, Robyn Swinton is drowning. She is saved – just – by local boy Jago Winters, and it is a moment that will change both of them forever.

Over the next seven years, Robyn and Jago’s paths lead them in different directions, to city streets and foreign shores. Will the bond forged that day Jago dragged Robyn in from the sea be strong enough to bring them back to one another, or has life already pulled them too far apart?

A joy to read
Sunday Express
'Enchanting and vivid... an amazing debut
An utterly beautiful story, brimming with romance and tinged with loss. The reader is swept away to the wild and rugged seascapes of Cornwall and beyond as we follow the journey of Jago and Robyn. Hall's sensuous, vivid prose draws you in and holds you captive until the last page. This is a summer read to be devoured
Lucy Clarke, author of THE SEA SISTERS
The Sea Between Us is that rare beast - a beautifully written, intricately observed love story that's both lyrical and enchanting. The story ebbs and flows like the Cornish coast as love is gained, lost and gained again. This is a novel that deserves to be savoured
Hannah Beckerman, author of THE DEAD WIFE'S HANDBOOK
A perfect summer read. A book as magical as its Rockabilly Cove, as Jago and Robyn's tantalising, teasing journey
Tiffany Murray, author of DIAMOND STAR HALO and SUGAR HALL

The prose is an art-form in itself... a story that grabs the reader and completely immerses them in a picturesque world from the first to the last page. I couldn't put it down... beautifully written
