From the celebrated author of My Name Is Lucy Barton and Oh William!

Rich with empathy and a searing clarity, Elizabeth Strout evokes in Lucy by the Sea the fragility and uncertainty of the recent past, as well as the possibilities that long, quiet days can inspire.

In March 2020 Lucy’s ex-husband William pleads with her to leave New York and escape to a coastal house he has rented in Maine. Lucy reluctantly agrees, leaving the washing-up in the sink and expecting to be back in a week or two. Weeks turn into months, and it’s just Lucy, William and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the sea.


‘A superbly gifted storyteller and a craftswoman in a league of her own’ Hilary Mantel
