Sea of Memories by Fiona Valpy

2014, Edinburgh

“Welcome to the Drimbeig Nursing Home”. The words on the sign belie the fact that I’m standing in the pelting rain, on the wrong side of the glass door, stooping slightly to bring my ear nearer to the Entryphone in the hope that someone’s heard me press the buzzer and will respond. I huddle in closer, trying to flatten myself against the wall beneath the shallow overhang of the guttering, which drips even more water down my back. The wind tears handfuls of yellowed leaves from the plane trees that encircle the grey stone building and throws them against the windows, where they plaster themselves for a moment before being washed to the gravel by rivulets of raindrops. I check my watch, impatient, my mind already on home – Will Dan be coping? Will he have remembered Finn’s medication? – then press the buzzer again, a longer and more assertive ring this time.

This is the first book in a 2 book series, is rated  4.8 out of 1,159 customer reviews. Right now at Amazon, the Audible Audiobook is only $1.99, and the Kindle Unlimited audio is free

  1. I am now intrigued. Thanks for sharing…and enjoy.

  2. I’d have to read a little more to be sure it was good match for me. Can’t beat the price though!

  3. Sounds like a good one. The cover looks so peaceful.

  4. It’s a little wordy but, I’m still curious. Hope it’s good.

  5. I’ll take a closer look at this one after reading the excerpt you posted.

  6. The cover really draws me in too.

  7. Good, descriptive opening! I like the cover, and the fact that the book’s set in Edinburgh. I hope you’ll enjoy it, Vicki!
