A Heart Linked To The Sea!

rich strange

Megan has always been attracted to the sea, spending her days drawing its many faces from its roaring white caped waves to its calming living tidal pools. But now something is different, something had crawled out of the sea and into her life. More and more the sea is encroaching on her life, overtaking all she loves, and if she is not careful she will lose all she loves to the sea.

Jonah's passion is for the past, it lies in the rocks and fossils of the sea that crowd his thoughts and litter his home. But now the sea has offered up a new passion to Jonah, one that he cannot escape from, hard as he might try. For the song of the sea has captured his heart blinding him to all things but her song, and with this song in his heart he is in danger of losing himself to the sea he loves.

Something Rich And Strange has emerged from the sea, bewitching, enthralling, demanding to be heard. But the sea sings not just for love but for salvation for the seas are dying, pollution clogging its heart and killing its soul. A story of love and enchantment, this second book in the Fairyland series is passionately written by an expert storyteller bringing to life the dreamy images of a much loved illustrator.
