The Winter Sea is a must read!! It is a spellbinding novel and you will not want to leave it's pages. One of the best books I have ever read. If you like historical or romantic fiction, you will find yourself enthralled from the very beginning. It will leave you breathless, it will make you cry in at least one chapter, and it will make you wish it were a series because you will not want it to end.
Susanna Kearsley has written this book with such creativity and detail. She approaches this book with an interesting way of reaching back and forth across time. And as amazing as it is, I am so relieved to say that it is a clean read!! There is no bad language and there are no sexual scenes; there are definitely romantic scenes, but they stay at that endearing level and do not reach an uncomfortable amount of graphic detail. This goes to prove that it can be done - we can find heartstopping reads that are clean too!! Maybe it just takes an exceptional writer to do it.
