“A Year of Marvellous Ways” by Sarah Winman

sarah-winman-a-year-of-marvellous-waysSarah Winman, author of the much-loved When God Was a Rabbit, has written a lovely new novel set in a tiny village on the Cornish coast. 89-year-old Marvellous Ways lives in her ramshackle home on the creek near St Ophere and waits… for something, she doesn’t know what. Demobbed soldier Drake washes up, reeling from the war, and a connection between them. A magical realist novel set in Britain just after the Second World War, this is an enjoyable, absorbing story with a touch of romance.
