A Year of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman

Cornwall, 1947.  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.

A Year of Marvellous Ways is a glorious, life-affirming story about the magic in everyday life and the pull of the sea, the healing powers of storytelling and sloe gin, love and death and how we carry on when grief comes snapping at our heels.

The much anticipated and utterly beguiling new novel from Sarah Winman,
author of the international bestseller When God Was a Rabbit

Peer & Press Reviews

A book to savour, to read in wonderful, rich little bits like dark chocolate.  Winman’s prose is poetry, with a rhythm, a heartbeat, that carries you through like music.

Emma Hooper, author of Etta and Otto and Russell and James

Fanciful imagery and beautiful prose that ebbs and flows.

The Independent

Winman excels in her sweeping prose and her unwavering theme of love in all its forms.


Yet again Sarah Winman has written a beautiful, beautiful novel.  A Year of Marvellous Ways will hypnotise, seduce, until you can do nothing but pick it up and read it again.

Tiffany Murray, author of Sugar Hall
