Lucy by the sea

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout has crafted an exquisite novel centred around a divorced couple stuck together and isolated in lockdown. A pandemic novel that’s frozen in time, focusing on the minor quirks of daily life that helps us to view the societal plan more clearly. This is a story that touches on the need for human connection, enduring love, loss, despair and hope, all while set against the arresting backdrop of a swirling, moody sea.
