Somewhere Beyond the Sea – Miranda Dickinson

Somewhere Beyond the Sea - Miranda DickinsonCan you fall in love with someone before you’ve even met?

Seren MacArthur is living a life she never intended. Trying to save the Cornish seaside business her late father built – while grieving for his loss – she has put her own dreams on hold and is struggling. Until she discovers a half-finished seaglass star on her favourite beach during an early morning walk. When she completes the star, she sets into motion a chain of events that will steal her heart and challenge everything she believes.

Jack Dixon is trying to secure a better life for daughter Nessie and himself. Left a widower and homeless when his wife died, he’s just about keeping their heads above water. Finding seaglass stars completed on Gwithian beach is a bright spark that slowly rekindles his hope.

Seren and Jack are searching for their missing pieces. But when they meet in real life, it’s on the opposing sides of a battle. Jack is managing the redevelopment of a local landmark, and Seren is leading the community campaign to save it.

Both have reason to fight – Seren for the cause her father believed in, Jack for his livelihood. But only one can win. With so much at stake, will they ever find what they are really looking for?

Miranda Dickinson’s Somewhere Beyond the Sea is a sparkling tale of love, life and finding magic where you least expect it.
Hot Brands Cool Places Review

Somewhere Beyond the Sea is such a beautiful and special book, it captures your imagination from the very first moment when Seren finds the half-finished seaglass star. Set in the most amazing location, which Miranda describes with such evocative detail that you can see the stars, feel the sand, breathe the air. We love the way that Miranda has structured the story from the two perspectives, and the poignant and sensitive way she portrays their emotions. This is a magical summer read. We loved it! Highly Recommended!
