A Year of Marvellous Ways

Sarah Winman

A life-affirming tale about an 89 year old woman who encounters a young soldier who's been traumatised by WWII.

It is 1947 and Marvellous Ways is in her 90th year. She is waiting. For what? She does not know. But, living quietly in the remote Cornish creek that has been her home for almost all her life, Marvellous is certain that she will recognise her fate, her destiny even, when it materialises. And when a broken soldier washes up in the tiny estuary, the last great circle of Marvellous’s life begins to turn. Utterly engrossing from start to finish.
