This review is from: Secrets of the Sea: A Novel (Paperback)
The small Town small island is wonderfully evoked by Nicholas Shakespeare by using snippets from the local storekeepers news letters and the whole book gives you a feel of being part of this Tasmanian community.
The story is a gentle tale of life in Wellington Point;Alex Dove's return to his parents farm, his marriage to Merridy and the life they build together with the help of an Oyster farm.
The book engages and holds your interest without ever challenging although it does have the faintest hint of Patrick White about it in the way it portrays the life and lives of the community it is set.
A pleasant book to read.
