Today I’m thrilled to be hosting the Blog Tour for Come back To Me by Daniela Sacerdoti.
This third enchanting novel set on the windswept Seal Island is about finding love for a second time when hope seems lost.
Three separate lives. Three broken hearts.
Haunted by his wife’s death, Matt arrives on Seal Island determined to be alone and unable to escape his grief.
In the island’s hospital, a young woman named Rose lies in a coma, trapped by the memories of events leading up to her accident.
Grace, the island’s doctor, is at the heart of the community. Only she knows how much she regrets turning down the chance of love and a family years ago.
For these three people hope seems gone.
But life is about to offer an unexpected new beginning…
This is a wonderfully atmospheric tale about three very different people, each facing events that have left them broken and filled with grief.
Consumed with guilt over the death of his wife, Matthew Shearer moves to Seal Island to heal and rebuild something that resembles living. He soon begins to find a place for himself within the small group of welcoming locals and escape from his life in London. Yet as much as he craves the isolation the Island offers he feels alone and desperately misses his wife Mia who was killed there years earlier in a car accident. When a young woman appears at his door in the middle of the night, disorientated and soaking wet, saying she has a message from Mia, Matthew begins to question his sanity and the depths to which he has sunk into despair.
This is my first visit to Seal Island and indeed my first encounter with Daniela Sacerdoti but I have to say I felt like I was returning to an old friend. She writes beautifully and has built up an incredibly memorable set of characters and I will definitely look back at her two previous novels set in this harsh but beautifully landscape. In this, her latest, he weaves the stories of these three characters, each dealing with their own heartbreak and challenges, and brings them together in a haunting tale that is expertly crafted. I love the imagery and the hint of magic that simmers beneath the surface for you to find. The Island and it’s small community are a major part of the story and add so much intrigue and atmosphere to events. I couldn’t help but be enchanted by them.
I enjoyed reading this moving tale ever so much and now that I have fallen in love with Daniela’s writing I very much look forward to reading more of her novels. Oh, how I love discovering a new author!
Come Back To Me is published by Headline Review and is available now in eBook and a paperback edition will be published in July.
Thank you to the wonderful Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me to be part of this blog tour. I love how diverse the books she offers me are and this is one that I will be thinking of for some time yet.
