From the Editor

Sea of Memories has stayed with me for months, because of the exploits and character of our heroine, Ella. Her time as a spy during the Second World War is absolutely fascinating and a thrill to discover, particularly given that we first meet Ella when she is an idealistic teenager with the world at her feet. She leaves Scotland to visit France and is swept away by the romance of it all. She longs for a life working in the Parisian art world and dreams of marrying her first love, the enigmatic Christophe, but heartache follows swiftly: the war starts, and the woman she thought she would become is not the one she ends up being.

Fiona Valpy creates the tension and drama of Ella’s story so beautifully. She balances Ella’s bravery and ingenuity with her love for Christophe—love that keeps her sane in her darkest hours. My heart was in my mouth during the scenes of Ella’s dangerous war work, and it ached at the tragedy of the young couple’s separation.

What I think you’ll love about this book is the way it depicts the disruption the war wrought. It taught me to understand that life doesn’t always go to plan, but there are still adventures and great loves to be had along the way.

It’s testament to Valpy’s skilful writing that we, the readers, are swept headlong into a magnificent love story and the tale of a truly inspirational woman.

Product description

Product Description

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.

About the Author

Fiona Valpy spent seven years living in France, having moved there from the UK in 2007. She and her family renovated an old, rambling farmhouse in the Bordeaux winelands, during which time she developed new-found skills in cement-mixing, interior decorating and wine-tasting. All of these inspirations, along with a love for the place, the people and their history, have found their way into the books she's written, which have been translated into German, Norwegian, Czech and Turkish. Fiona now lives in Scotland, but enjoys regular visits to France in search of the sun.
