From the author of STILL LIFE, TIN MAN and WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT. 'Will stand the test of time' Irish Examiner 'Beautiful prose that ebbs and flows' Independent 'A Year of Marvellous Ways is like Dylan Thomas given a sexy rewrite by Angela Carter' Patrick Gale This is a story about Marvellous Ways, an eighty-nine-year-old woman who lives alone in a remote Cornish creek, spending her days sitting by the river, peering through a telescope. And it's about Francis Drake, a young soldier who washes up in her creek, shattered by war and broken-hearted. It's about the magic in everyday life and the lure of the sea, the healing powers of storytelling and sloe gin, love and death, and how we carry on when grief comes snapping at our heels.
