A Year Of Marvelous Ways – Author Sarah Winman Book Signing , The Book Shop Liskeard
July 22, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Marvellous Ways is eighty-nine years old and has lived alone in a remote Cornish creek for nearly all her life. Lately she’s taken to spending her days sitting on a mooring stone by the river with a telescope. She’s waiting for something – she’s not sure what, but she’ll know it when she sees it.
Drake is a young soldier left reeling by the Second World War. When his promise to fulfil a dying man’s last wish sees him wash up in Marvellous’ creek, broken in body and spirit, the old woman comes to his aid.
We remember Sarah for her previous book When God Was a Rabbit, also set in Cornwall.
