Description:
Marvellous Ways is eighty-nine years old and has lived alone in a remote Cornish creek for nearly all her life. Lately she's taken to spending her days sitting on a mooring stone by the river with a telescope. She's waiting for something - she's not sure what, but she'll know it when she sees it. Drake is a young soldier left reeling by the Second World War. When his promise to fulfil a dying man's last wish sees him wash up in Marvellous' creek, broken in body and spirit, the old woman comes to his aid. As an unlikely friendship grows between the two, can Drake give Marvellous what she needs to say goodbye to the world, and can she give him what he needs to go on?

I loved this book and the beautiful, captivating cover. It was almost like a fairy tale in parts. At times I thought the 4 main characters, Marvellous, Francis, Jack and Peace were related, but no, although they were all so closely connected. The story flowed so easily. making it a joy to read. Another excellent novel, as I also enjoyed "When God was a Rabbit". Star Rating 5/5 stars
