Today, it is my pleasure to be one of the blogs taking part in the cover reveal for Sea Babies by Tracey Scott-Townsend which will be published by Wild Pressed Books in 2019. Tracey is the author of The Last Time We Saw Marion, Of His Bones, The Eliza Doll and Another Rebecca.
Lauren Wilson is travelling by ferry to the Outer Hebrides, about to begin a new job as a social worker with the Island’s youth. She’s also struggling to come to terms with a catastrophic event. When somebody sits opposite her at the cafeteria table, she refuses
to look up, annoyed at having her privacy disturbed. But a hand is pushing a mug of tea towards her, and a livid scar on the back of the hand releases a flood of memories…
Some people believe in the existence of a parallel universe. Does Lauren have a retrospective choice about the outcome of her terrible recent accident, or is it the bearer of that much older scar who has the power to decide what happens to her life now?
Set mainly in the Outer Hebrides and Edinburgh from the 1980s to the present, Sea Babies is a potent, emotional psychological drama that explores the harder aspects of relationships, as well as the idea of choice, responsibility and the refugee in all of us.
With thanks to Kelly from Love Books Group for organising the cover reveal and to Wild Pressed Books for providing the content.
