Publisher's Summary

When Kendra first visits her ailing grandmother, Ella has only one request: that Kendra write her story down, before she forgets…

In 1937, seventeen-year-old Ella’s life changes forever when she is sent to spend the summer on the beautiful Île de Ré and meets the charismatic, creative Christophe. They spend the summer together, exploring the island’s sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, and, for the first time in her life, Ella feels truly free.

But the outbreak of war casts everything in a new light. Ella is forced to return to Scotland, where she volunteers for the war effort alongside the dashing Angus. In this new world, Ella feels herself drifting further and further from who she was on the Île de Ré. Can she ever find her way back? And does she want to?

From the windswept Île de Ré to the rugged hills of Scotland, Sea of Memories is a spellbinding journey about the power of memory, love and second chances.

Frustrating narration of a compelling story...

I don’t know who was in charge of quality control on this audiobook project, but the droning tone and repetitive cadence of this narration spoiled this otherwise compelling and interesting novel for me and I couldn’t finish it.

Marvelous!

What a wonderful story, had quite a nice surprise in it, full of all the good things that makes a story so good and wish to never end! Read it with plenty of time to finish it all because you would not want to let it go!

Lovely story.

I’m afraid that I found the narrators voice and style uncomfortable. The story was well written and was was carried along in it.

Fantastic Read

I absolutely adored this book. I had it on Audible for when I walk and also on Kindle for down time. The story was wonderful, beautifully portrayed and the descriptions made it easy to imagine what it was like for Ellen and Christoph. A real page turner. The ending was not at all what I expected and I like that most especially.
The narrator would not have been my choice. She didn't make the book come alive as it should. Her voice was very flat and toneless throughout and one had to imagine what the characters might sound like.
Overall, it was a fantastic read and I felt the usual sadness that I often do when finishing a really good book
