5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, absorbing and revelatory read., 11 Jun 2002
This review is from: The Mariner's Star (Hardcover)
Candida Clarke writes pellucidly of love and loss, brilliantly describing the sense of being alone and without direction, lost in a sea of mourning. Her descriptions of the ocean are wonderfully evocative of its power and beauty, its everchanging nature, reflecting both the precariousness and tenacity of human life. Layers of emotion and memory are peeled back, as the author explores the relationships of the woman to her lost husband, to her past and to the sea which had apparently inevitably claimed him. A beautiful, absorbing and revelatory read. Highly recommended.
