[An] extraordinary story by an author who's fast becoming one of our firm faves (The Sun, Fabulous Magazine)
This atmospheric, slow burn of a read is perfect for the end of the summer (Daily Mail)
Lush, romantic escapism (Mirror)
A perfect summer read. A book as magical as its Rockabilly Cove, as Jago and Robyn's tantalising, teasing journey (Tiffany Murray, author of DIAMOND STAR HALO and SUGAR HALL)
An utterly beautiful story, brimming with romance and tinged with loss. The reader is swept away to the wild and rugged seascapes of Cornwall and beyond as we follow the journey of Jago and Robyn. Hall's sensuous, vivid prose draws you in and holds you captive until the last page. This is a summer read to be devoured (Lucy Clarke, author of THE SEA SISTERS)
The Sea Between Us is that rare beast - a beautifully written, intricately observed love story that's both lyrical and enchanting. The story ebbs and flows like the Cornish coast as love is gained, lost and gained again. This is a novel that deserves to be savoured (Hannah Beckerman, author of THE DEAD WIFE'S HANDBOOK)
Luscious tastes of Cornwall wrapped in yearning, loss, regret and love...wonderful (Liz Fenwick, author of THE CORNISH HOUSE)
The prose is an art-form in itself... a story that grabs the reader and completely immerses them in a picturesque world from the first to the last page. I couldn't put it down... beautifully written (The Book Bag)

'As tender and insightful as it is gripping... the sheer joy of being young and alive is shining out on every page'(Susan Fletcher, author of Eve Green)
A novel that glints with passion, loss and doubt (Marie Claire)

If, like me, you are a devotee of British English and find yourself irritated by American spellings and turns of phrase then please read this novel. It is just an exquisitely crafted story with a timeless quality and I know this is a book I will return to. I'm already greatly looking forward to the new offering from Emylia Hall.
This is a lovely story. It is divided along the lines of the tides from ‘Spindrift’ to ‘Spring Tide’ and the lyrical writing reflects the ebb and flow of the sea. The storytelling is completely satisfying as Robyn’s life changes and develops so that it is never entirely certain that her happiness can last. Her own experiences affect and alter her perception of her parents’ lives too.
Underlying the story is an incredible exploration of memory and fate and we see how a missed comment, letter or opportunity can change the whole course if our lives. It is a salutary lesson in making the most of opportunities as they arise.
The characters are warm and human so that it is impossible not to care about them as you read. I’m sure I would have fallen for Denny too! The emotions conveyed are stunning and so much is expressed through creativity with Jago’s wood working and Robyn’s paintings that it made me want to visit a gallery and buy a piece of their work to try to retain the closeness I felt when reading the book. The title has multiple interpretations, from the physical separation of the Atlantic to a shared love of a single place and the sea becomes a character in its own right.
I thoroughly enjoyed Emylia Hall’s ‘The Sea Between Us’ and found it pulled at my emotions the way the moon pulls at the tides. It is a gorgeous book.
It is I think, something about the beautiful mix of atmospheric sense of place and the very authentic and emotive characters that this author brings to all her novels. The Sea Between Us is no exception to that rule – I fell for Robyn and Jago and rooted for them all the way, at the same time I was fully immersed into the gorgeous prose that allowed me to visualise the beauty of Cornwall, a place that I love and know quite well.
The novel follows our two as life seems insistent on keeping them apart – there is a strong sense of fate running through the narrative, some moments that tug on the heartstrings, an eclectic cast of external characters to keep things intriguing and all the way you are wishing and praying for a happy outcome. It just drags you in and keeps you turning those pages.
I am most definitely NOT a romantic dreamer in the normal run of things. But just for a while, reading this book, I fully believed in all that stuff. I’m not promising a happy ending mind, you’ll have to find out for yourself on that score. But as the story twists and turns, opportunities missed, life unfolding, you will be utterly captivated. And maybe…just maybe….
Clever. Intuitive and descriptively immersive, I’m a huge fan. Highly Recommended.
Happy Reading Folks!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
