Book description for The Ebb:
#1 Amazon bestseller / ABNA Q-finalist
When Sofia falls in love, a mourning spirit begins to haunt her…
CORFU, GREECE, 1987
On a long holiday with her grandparents, Sofia Aspioti meets Danny Markson, a charming flirt who makes her laugh. Although she tries to keep him at arm’s length, worried that village gossip will get back to her strict family, she falls desperately in love. That’s when strange dreams about Brighton’s West Pier and a woman dressed in black begin to haunt her. Who is this grieving woman? And how is her lament related to Sofia’s feelings for Danny?
BRIGHTON, ENGLAND, 1937
Dreaming of wealth and happiness, Laura Mayfield arrives in Brighton to pursue a new life. She falls for Christian Searle, a happy-go-lucky stagehand at the West Pier theatre, but when she’s offered a chance to perform there, her love for him is put to the test. Charles Willard, a wealthy aristocrat, is fascinated by her and pursues her relentlessly. Will Laura choose love…or money?
The Lady of the Pier trilogy has two timelines that begin to merge in The Flow and finally become one story in The Storm. Although The Ebb creates a strong premise for the rest of the series it has a satisfactory ending and can be an enjoyable standalone read.
