Publisher Description

A broken family, a house of secrets—an entrancing tale of love and courage set during the Second World War.

After Rebecca’s mother dies, she must sort through her empty flat and come to terms with her loss. As she goes through her mother’s mail, she finds a handwritten envelope. In it is a letter that will change her life forever.

Olivia, her mother’s elderly cousin, needs help to save her beloved home. Rebecca immediately goes to visit Olivia in Cornwall only to find a house full of secrets—treasures in the attic and a mysterious tunnel leading from the cellar to the sea, and Olivia, nowhere to be found.

As it turns out, the old woman is stuck in hospital with no hope of being discharged until her house is made habitable again. Rebecca sets to work restoring the home to its former glory, but as she peels back the layers of paint and grime, she uncovers even more buried secrets—secrets from a time when the Second World War was raging, when Olivia was a young woman, and when both romance and danger lurked around every corner...

A sweeping and utterly spellbinding tale of a young woman’s courage in the face of war and the lengths to which she’ll go to protect those she loves against the most unexpected of enemies.

Echos of the past haunt the present

I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+. All opinions are my own. The Sea Gate by Jane Johnson is a Women's Fiction novel with strong romantic elements. The story takes place in Cornwall, England and moves between the time of WWII and the present. In the present day, artist Rebecca Young is at a crisis point, recovering from a double mastectomy, her beloved mother has died, and she’s not sure she wants to return home to the cheating boyfriend who wouldn’t even come to her mothers funeral with her. Discovering letters from an elderly cousin amongst her mother's mail asking for help allows her the opportunity to escape to Cornwall while she tries to figure out her life. Cousin Olivia Kito is in the hospital with a broken foot, and social services won’t allow her to return home until major repairs and renovations are made to her home. Rebecca takes on the tasks of fixing up the house and minding her cousin’s foul-mouthed parrot. Echos of the past still haunt the present, and long-buried family secrets must finally be put to rest. I enjoyed this book very much and do recommend reading it.
