©2006 Margaret Drabble; (P)2006 RNIB
"For all its dark knowledge, oceanic psychology, and spiny social critique, Drabble's novel is as scintillating as a sunny day onboard a fast-moving sailboat on the life-sustaining sea." (Booklist)
"Nothing as simple as a love story, this prismatic novel shines as a faceted portrait of England's changing mores, as an ode on childhood's joys and injustices, and a primer for marine biology, complete with hermaphrodite crayfish and fossils of sea lilies. Seductive as the tides, it pulls the reader in." (Publishers Weekly)

"The Sea Lady"
I was really disappointed with this book since I normally like Margaret Drabble's books. I'm afraid I thought it was quite boring pretty much throughout
