WINNER OF THE CORNISH LITERARY GUILD SALVER, 2012. The playwright Nick Darke loved Cornwall, where he was born and where he lived with his wife Jane and their family. They were as one with each other and the place. They worked in the same house, fished together, explored the coast and landscape together and kept the traditions of beachcombing, lobster fishing and preservation of coastal ecology alive. After Nick died Jane struggled with grief and was lost, unsure of how to rebuild her life. She had defined herself as a wife and mother and now she had to rediscover who she was before her marriage and embrace the new possibilities of life, artistic and personal.As Jane grieved she found her own ambitions and creativity as an artist and filmmaker. She began to find her own place and identity in Cornwall, drawing inspiration from the sea and strength from her family. It is her love of the Cornish coast and her daily walks along the beach that allow her to find a new individuality that embraces all she had shared with her husband, and discovers just how their relationship will continue to sustain her.
