Synopsis

The popularity of many signed editions may mean that stock sells out faster than our website can update. When the quantity listed in stock is low, we recommend contacting us to check current availability.





Read our exclusive interview with Sarah, in which she talks about saying our goodbyes on the backs of stories and song, how as adults we un-learn kindness and empathy and how youth keeps youth alive.





Marvellous Ways is eighty-nine years old and has lived alone in a remote Cornish creek for nearly all her life. Lately she's taken to spending her days sitting on a mooring stone by the river with a telescope. She's waiting for something - she's not sure what, but she'll know it when she sees it. Drake is a young soldier left reeling by the Second World War. When his promise to fulfil a dying man's last wish sees him wash up in Marvellous' creek, broken in body and spirit, the old woman comes to his aid. A Year of Marvellous Ways is a glorious, life-affirming story about the magic in everyday life and the pull of the sea, the healing powers of storytelling and sloe gin, love and death and how we carry on when grief comes snapping at our heels.
