It's four weeks now since we watched the film.
I picked it up in Falmouth Library because I liked the title, knowing nothing of the
history we watched and were transported onto the north Cornish coast.
The film was called. 'The wrecking season' by Nick and Jane Darke.
Since then I've read 'Held by the
Sea' by Jane Darke. If ever there was a book written for someone who
has lost (a strange term but this morning I can't think of a better one) someone they love dearly this is the book to read. Not all of those
crappy bereavement books that people seem to think are the right thing
to give you. This book is the one to read or give to someone who needs it. I wish I had had it 13 years ago,
it would have helped. It has helped.
This wonderful writer is so eloquent in the way
she describes the total isolation that you feel even with your family
We have since watched 'The art of Catching Lobsters' by Jane Darke. With silent tears flowing down our cheeks.
