Sea of Dreams
Holly and Mark Jepson have always spent Christmas helping Uncle Reg with the guests in his holiday chalets on the somerset coast. But this year Reg has to go into hospital, leaving Holly and Mark to welcome the motley assortment of guests--"three elderly ladies, a clutch of children, an eccentric arust and his handsome daughter (but is she really his daughters?), a young married couple expecting their first baby (to the secret envy of childless Holly), and a wife escaping from a violent past. Each of them will play a part in the unexpected and at times shattering events which take place before the new millennium dawns. This is a magical story from this greatly-loved bestselling author, who is now firmly established as one of the most successful writers of contemporary family novels.
