Product Description

Product Description

On the south coast of Cornwall a mother vanishes without trace, leaving behind her husband and three young children. The mystery that surrounds her disappearance lingers in the psyche of each one of them, shaping the people they are and their experiences in life, and it forces them apart. Then, without warning, almost half a century later, the family receive some extraordinary news. Their mother has resurfaced. Linked together again, the estranged siblings struggle to come to terms with a return to painful ground and the resurfacing of memories they would rather forget, as well as facing unstable futures. Sea Creatures is a pacy, page-turning family drama that explores many issues.

More About the Author

I was born in London and brought up for a while at my grandparents pub in Paddington before my family moved to Buckinghamshire. I have written stories since the day I learned to write and I'm thrilled to have published four novels with more on the way! I lived for a few years in the Middle East and have travelled all over the world. Places and people inspire the background to my books - such as Italy, Cornwall, Australia, Africa... I live near Farnham in Surrey now, writing, riding and enjoying my family.

Sea Creatures, The Song the Waves Sing (sequel), The Siren, and Whisky and Ginger are all published by GingerCat Books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sea Creatures -worth losing yourself in. 6 Feb 2013
By Fatbear
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Never having read anything by this author before I wasn't anticipating the way I was to be immediately drawn into the story. The characters are finely crafted and the descriptions of Cornwall made me long to be sitting on the sand, tasting the saltspray in the air. I'm gripped - and would love a sequel so I can find out what happens to the family next. I recommend this book without reservation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure pleasure to read 18 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The setting for Sea Creatures is a charming cottage located just outside a Cornish village. It's near the sea, and the descriptions of Cornwall conjure up the wildness and beauty of the coastal location. Set against this stunning backdrop is the disintegration of a family.

Val Harris picks apart the fragile threads that held the family together with skill and a sharp eye. She describes the bickering of the children and the increasing alcoholism of the dad as he descends into his personal hell.

From the depths, however, comes hope for the family. When mum returns a couple of decades later, it's to make peace, but is her family interested in resolving the past?

Beautifully observed and written, this book is pure pleasure to read.
