Summary

From the author of the Costa Book of the Year - Pure, a hypnotic, luminous exploration of buried grief and the mysterious workings of the heart.
On the surface Maud and Tim seem ill matched. Maud is a scientist, an only child from a modest background; Tim is a musician from a large, rich family. She is emotionally cool, he wears his heart on his sleeve. Yet they make a home together, have a child, and restore an old yacht. One day they will sail it, all three.
Then a dreadful tragedy occurs. The strange thing is, Maud appears unscathed by it. Tim's family are horrified - what is wrong with her? She tells no one when she begins to feel a ghostly presence or of her plan to sail singlehanded across the Atlantic. Maybe she can escape what is pursuing her....
Ranging from the West Country to an isolated orphanage in Brazil, this is the mesmerising story of an enigmatic woman and her emotional journey - as deeply affecting as her physical journey becomes nail-bitingly dramatic.

Strange woman & book. Enigmatic maybe better.

I really like and admire Andrew Miller. I think that he has attempted something difficult and different here. It pretty much works.The story surrounding the main character is told in 2 separate parts which are very different.
It is well written and read.

An 'interesting' story. Not really sure it has a meaning. Maybe more of an interest to someone who sails.
