Treasure From The Sea

Treasure From The Sea by Lisa Woollett, Illustrated by Sarah McCartney

Twice a day the tide came in and twice a day it went out. Each high tide left a strandline across the beach. All along it, often hidden amongst seaweed, were clues to secret worlds beneath the waves.

A wonderful story about finding nature’s treasure such as shells, mermaid’s purses and urchins. Two young children set off to the beach swimming, skimming stones and making sand spires. They come across a lady picking up items so they ask what she was collecting. We follow the three as they discover more about the beach they love to visit and the importance of cleaning up plastic as they go. A perfect summer read for all ages.

The uplifting true tale of a couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.

Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.

Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.

Talk and Signing with Andrew Wilson

Andrew gave a fantastic talk to Agatha Christie fans!

Andrew gets his inspiration for his books from actual events that happened to Agatha, during her extremely fascinating, and sometimes very mysterious life!

A Different Kind Of Evil is the second book in his exceptional crime series featuring Agatha Christie as detective. The books are based on real life events which happened in Mrs Christie’s life, and use them as the starting point for mysterious tales of murder and blackmail with her at their dark heart.

The first book A Talent for Murder fictionalised Agatha’s famous 10 day disappearance in December 1926, when she walked out of her family home and didn’t resurface until over a week later at the Swan Hotel in Harrogate. The new book follows Mrs Christie to Tenerife, a real life trip she made with her daughter in January 1927, and a tale of suicide and mysterious deaths on the sunny island… They’re fantastic books, perfect for any Agatha Christie fan, and have been praised for their intricate plots and sensitive handling of her private life.
