Short Stories

Set in Cornwall, coastal erosion and flooding take on a near mythical power as the short stories in this collection weave in and out of the recent past and near future, as lives and relationships ebb and flow with the tide.

From one maritime tragedy to another, the community, and three generations of women from the same family, struggle with their over-close affinity for the sea.


“…a beautiful book of short stories set in Cornwall and inspired by the generations of strong women that have made this elemental peninsula their home… Some of the stories are set in the future, some in the past, some in the present day and there is a strong sense of time and of the tug of the tides that turn and return in communities and in our own lives. The reader becomes aware of the ever expanding ripples of tragedy and loss, of the mystical, of shared experience and inherited resilience that radiate through each woman’s life.” – Cornish Bird blog
