Publisher's Summary

Can you fall in love with someone before you've even met? 

Seren MacArthur is living a life she never intended. Trying to save the Cornish seaside business her late father built - while grieving for his loss - she has put her own dreams on hold and is struggling. Until she discovers a half-finished seaglass star on her favourite beach during an early morning walk. When she completes the star, she sets into motion a chain of events that will steal her heart and challenge everything she believes. 

Jack Dixon is trying to secure a better life for daughter Nessie and himself. Left a widower and homeless when his wife died, he's just about keeping their heads above water. Finding seaglass stars completed on Gwithian beach is a bright spark that slowly rekindles his hope. 

Seren and Jack are searching for their missing pieces. But when they meet in real life, it's on the opposing sides of a battle. Jack is managing the redevelopment of a local landmark, and Seren is leading the community campaign to save it. 

Both have reason to fight - Seren for the cause her father believed in, Jack for his livelihood. But only one can win. With so much at stake, will they ever find what they are really looking for? 

Miranda Dickinson's Somewhere Beyond the Sea is a sparkling tale of love, life and finding magic where you least expect it.

Lovely and inspiring.

wonderful story that made me think of the possibilities in life and how maybe my dad is watching me too and spurring me on to step away from the 9 to 5 and into my possibilities

Really nice feel good story

Lovely story with a nice plot, great characters and stunning descriptions of Cornish life. The two person narration really adds to the experience. I would recommend to any reader, male or female.

Drags on

What I thought would keep my interest, did the total opposite. It was like each chapter repeated itself

Only book I haven’t been able to finish. I did t want to waste a minutes more time 🙄

Amazing

I have both the paperback and audiobook. Both are totally fantastic. Escapism at it's best.

Great book but....

Loved the book and story but this is the third Cornish based book that pronounces Fowey incorrectly. It should rhyme with Roy instead of ' Ow-wee'. I would have hoped that narrators check the pronunciation of places before reading the book. Apart from that it was super light reading making me remember how I love Cornwall and particularly Polruan and Fowey. These places are in my heart but unfortunately now I have become disabled and a wheelchair user they are places my pushers don't fancy their chances with the cobbles. Still, l can daydream about them!!! Good book, recommended.

A lovely story, set in the heart of St Ives

Purchased after receiving a recommendation from friends local to St Ives. Having lived there, and now return whenever I can, this really made me smile at the familiar locations, descriptions, and associations attached.

Lovely, feel good story too with a happy ending :)

Why can't the narrator's speak properly!

The narrator's especially the male narrator drops so many letters, extends his rr's. It's put on as some words miss being ruined!!

Shame about the accent.

Great story. Shame about the narrator, especially the male. Even in Cornwall people know how to pronounce the letter T. Some awful addition of heavy Rs where they really are not required.

Gwithian, St Ives and sea glass

I’ve loved Gwithian Towans from a little girl, but then, what’s not to love about Cornwall, add into the mix, sea glass and St.Ives plus a lovely story and it’s going to be a winner. I’ll even excuse the dodgy West Country/Cornish accents - we don’t all talk like this honest!
