The winter scenes in the cabin draw the reader into the unprepared men's despair as they are trapped in the frozen north. Jack, Sarah and Edward's stories are gentler, at times more joyous.
Best book I've read in ages. Awaiting the author's next book.
The First World War is the backdrop to one of the stories and this is handled with consummate skill by James Ferron Anderson, who subtly underplays the menace, resisting the temptation to adopt the easy option of describing gore and horror. Indeed, everything is handled with a deft touch, showing, rather than telling the reader - exactly as it should be.
The book handles strong emotional themes of love, jealousy, loss and, when it's least expected, redemption. Throughout the novel the imagery is strongly drawn: I often find myself skipping over descriptions in a lot of literature, but not with The River and The Sea. I lived it, and loved it!
This is a wonderful book and I thoroughly recommend it.
