#WinterPeople by @GraMurphy

By Pamelascott
Three strangers.One question: who are we without the people who love us?

Sis Cotter has lived her whole life in a small house by her beloved beach. Here, she grew up, reared her family, and buried her husband. Now her children are far away and, in three days, her house will be taken from her.

Next door, Lydia has withdrawn from her husband, her friends, her life. She watches the sea as her own private penance for a wrong she can never put right. Peter's best friend is dying, and his long-time foster mother is slowly forgetting who he is. Adrift without his two anchors and struggling with the ethics of displacing people.

I've enjoyed other books by the author so expected to enjoy Winter People. I liked this book a lot. This is different from the usual books I read as it's quiet, slow paced and introspective, focusing on mostly the internal world of the characters and their connections rather than a book filled with action and drama. I felt like I really got to know the three characters. I really enjoyed this book.
