The Winter Sea
The Winter Sea | Susanna Kearsley
Carrie settles into the shadow of Slains Castle in Scotland, creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors, and starts to write about the Jacobite invasion of 1708. When she can no longer tell the difference between today and centuries ago, is she dealing with an ancestral memory-- a memory that might destroy her?

This book kept me up late last night and had me up early this morning to finish it. I love how Kearsley ties together her present day heroine and the heroine in the past in her books with ancestral memories.

I also enjoyed reading about the earlier Jacobites and the 1708 rising to put King James back on the throne in Scotland. Ever since Outlander I‘ve had a soft spot for Scotland but hadn‘t read much on this period yet.

sprainedbrain I need to get to this one... I really loved her The Rose Garden, and this book sounds lovely. 1mo

I have wanted to read this for years and finally managed to snag a copy. It is a lovely story of love and loss, time-blend and history with a gentle heroine and an altogether more feisty author, and plenty of small glimpses of the connections between the two. I enjoyed the book but do think it might have suffered a bit through the narration which, although well done, felt a little staid and teacher-like to me. #Audible

This has been my “waiting for the kids to fall asleep” read on my kindle this month and I loved it! Sort of quiet and slow, it‘s definitely a change of pace from what I‘ve been reading lately. The story was engaging and the history seemed well researched. It was my first Kearsley book, but I‘ll definitely read more!

I discovered Audible and am now an avid listener on my daily commute. Also I joined NetGalley which in turn caused me to embrace a Kindle, something I never thought I would do. I still buy paperbacks though and read constantly so just the formats have altered slightly.

Chrissyreadit My reading has increased close to pre illness amount, and I feel like I have a community. I missed talking about books and being around people who love books. I tried several times to start a book group with no luck. And was not invited to join any local ones (which was ok- very different taste in reading).Litsy filled the gap. 7mo
saguarosally I had started reading more at first. Now oddly enough I‘m reading way less than I did before Litsy. I tried swaps but then I went to a life on the road. So really I just read less now. 😳 7mo
Jhullie @Chrissyreadit me too. None of the (very few) local book clubs were my thing and I have found my kindred spirits on Litsy. 7mo

Jhullie @saguarosally I tried some swaps too must after spending an inordinate amount of time and money on an international swap it went missing from her front porch which soured it for me. A life on the road sounds amazing, so tell me more. 7mo
saguarosally @Jhullie I took up a career where I‘m on the road pretty much all the time. So I go out when I can and take pictures of things, it‘s great fun. 7mo
Megabooks @saguarosally @Jhullie I‘m not a fan of swaps either. I found the whole thing too stressful. I‘m glad other people enjoy it, though! 7mo
Princess-Kingofkings I've been willing and enjoyed reading other genres. I had never listened to an audiobook before joining Litsy. I've also felt free to quit reading a book I didn't enjoy and just move on. 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Jhullie @Megabooks I‘m so bummed your experiences with swaps burned you out. I‘ve had two bad experiences, but I have had mostly good ones. I enjoyed it enough I‘m planning on organizing my second one this summer. I totally get it‘s not for everyone- I‘m bummed because I feel more connected by having done them, and it stinks that not every experience is good. 7mo
Megabooks @Chrissyreadit I feel like to make the swap as special as I‘d want it to be, I‘d have to spend more money than I have. I know there are ways to get around this, but 🤷🏻‍♀️. Plus I tend to read more ebooks and digital audiobooks than physical copies, so that‘s probably the biggest reason right now. 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Megabooks you make sense- I‘m happy with everyone on Litsy, I‘m just bummed that swaps have been bad for people too. I have gotten into ebooks with Litsy because I‘m reading more in short bursts. Do you find it hard to remember what a book is about? I‘m struggling that I can‘t flip an ebook and read the back cover..... 7mo
Jerdencon Net galley, ok swaps,postal book clubs - and definitely reading much more than I did before 7mo

The Winter Sea was my favorite book of 2018. I love Scottish and Jacobite history! Carrie McClelland is writing a novel and rents a cottage next to Slains Castle where her novel takes place. As she writes, she realizes more and more that her words are more than fiction. This book had me reeling for more. I couldn‘t even pick up another book for a couple of weeks because I didn‘t want to stop thinking about the characters of this book.

Flawed...BUT I couldn‘t put it down! Sure, the frame story was overly leading (and should be held in contempt of literary court) 🤥, the romances underdeveloped 😡, and the history added next to nothing contextually 🤯.

Mechanically, at best a 3 ⭐️ read, but reality bites, people! Escapist fiction should be sung to the tune of George Michael‘s Freedom ‘90 🎤, and Kearsley‘s book very nicely tucks into that frame story. 😉 See what I did there!?!

I slogged through this book until about the 50% mark and wasn‘t sure I was going to get through it. I‘m not a big romance person but love history but it felt like the author was taking a piece of history and just plugging her story in the spaces and was so choppy. At about halfway though, the story focused more on the historical characters and definitely found its stride. I even enjoyed the romantic element lol. Will read more books by her!

I wasn't expecting the emotional rollercoaster in the second half of this book. Like my last Kearsley read, there was a lot of time when I wondered if we were going anywhere- and this isn't short. But again, it paid off, and I'm impressed with the evocative writing and well researched story. I learned a bit about Scotland in the early 1700's and the Jacobites. Nice gothic, romantic, historical fiction. Kearsley is becoming a favorite. 4 🌟🌟🌟🌟
