Saskia Granton is intrigued by an invitation to visit her reclusive great-aunt Alessandra, who lives on the Scottish coast. It's a chance to rediscover her lifelong love of the sea - and to forget, if only for a few weeks, the boring career her parents have mapped out for her. Swept immediately into the rhythm of life in a fishing community, Saskia slowly begins to realize how little she really knows about her roots. Somehow, she needs to understand the past if she is to find the direction she needs for her future - a future that may or may not include her new friend Ben. Just as the sea gives up its bounty, so too her great-aunt must reveal the secrets of the past - the terrible toll of lives lost, and the very personal tragedy that left Alessandra herself so isolated. Only then can Saskia break free . . .

Review:

"Themes of loss and forgiveness are at the heart of this haunting tale of self-discovery by an author at the height of her powers . . . Breslin's mesmerising descriptions of the sea and the people who depend upon it captures all the atmospheric beauty of north-west Scotland. A truly memorable story" * The Bookseller * "A sensitive, finely structured novel which unfolds as delicately as a "creamy purl of foam at the water's edge"" * Books for Keeps * "Packs an emotional punch whilst highlighting the contemporary concerns of fishing communities under threat of economic extinction" * Guardian * "Saskia's Journey is a sensitive, finely structured, balanced narrative" * Writeaway! *
