Saskia's Journey




A gripping novel from the author of REMEMBRANCE.

Saskia Granton is intrigued by an invitation to visit her mysterious great-aunt Alessandra up on the Scottish coast. It's a chance to rediscover her lifelong love of the sea, but Saskia also slowly realizes how little she really knows about her roots. Somehow, she needs to understand the past if she is to find the direction she needs for her future. Just as the sea must eventually give up its bounty, so too her great-aunt must reveal the secrets of the past - the terrible toll of lives claimed by the sea, and the very personal tragedy that left Alessandra herself so isolated. Only then can Saskia break the cycle...
