Loved this book! Exceptionally well-written novel containing all the elements of a captivating read! Beautiful descriptions of the wild landscape and the Cornwall coast, an old decrepit house with treasures in the attic and a dark and mysterious cellar; family secrets and dangerous neighbors, a dual timeline between the present and WWII, and a strong female protagonist in each time period with romance for each of them. Oh yes, and a parrot. If you like Kate Morton's novels, you must read this one. The Sea Gate is now on my favorites shelf.

I loved this book! It had a little bit of everything: historical fiction (WWII in Cornwall), romance, mystery, racial tension, family dynamics, and some very strong female characters. The story line was believable and I just couldn't put it down. It has been a long time since I read a book that I enjoyed this much. Women will love this!
