The Lonely Margins of the Sea
The Lonely Margins of the Sea
Koea, Shonagh

The Lonely Margins of the Sea was runner up to the Duetz Medal for Fiction at the 1999 Montana book awards. Stephanie is visiting her cousin Louise, who has had a serious operation. Louise is still living in her childhood home, the one close to the lonely margins of the sea. It is the home that Stephanie visited as a child; the lonely child, always on the edge of the family circles and never allowed to play with the china dolls on the staircase. But Stephanie's immediate past is the one full of skeletons, something that becomes evident as the story unfolds ...Witty, poignant and thoroughly entertaining, this is vintage Koea.
