A NovelBook - 2007 | 1st ed
At once a powerful love story and an intricately plotted mystery, Winterton Blue is the breathtaking new novel from the Booker Prize finalist and national best-selling author of The Hiding Place and Remember Me. For the last twenty years, Lewis has been haunted by his brother's death. Then, on a quest to finally find the person he believes is responsible, he meets Anna, who is haunted by her mother. Except her mother, Rita, happens to be very much alive and is the exact opposite of her daughter; loud, carefree, and a daredevil. At seventy-six, she still runs a guest house overflowing with cocktails, music hall turns, and her boyfriend, Vernon, a retired actor and bon vivant. Recognizing a kindred spirit in each other, Lewis and Anna are at first too headstrong to admit they are susceptible to love. Against the backdrop of the Norfolk coast, with its massive skies and relentless seas, they must learn to trust each other and accept that an uncertain future can be as wild and alluring as the landscape they have grown to love.
