Sea Lord. Book review

I don’t usually review books on this blog. I use goodreads, but I enjoyed this story so much I thought I’d tell you about it.

Bernard Cornwell is known for his “Sharpe” novels but this is different. Sea Lord is a book based on a love of sailing and the pull of destiny. It is fast paced and exciting, something that has been lacking in all the other books I have read in Lockdown

It was written in 1989 so has been around for a while. If you like a mix of crime and romance this is the book for you. The death of a relative brings an adventurer home to try to find a missing painting, but he is not the only person on the quest. Family problems complicate and violence ensues. Wonderful stuff!

I am a retired schoolteacher now writing novels in Worthing. After eight locally based relationship novels I have now written a children's story which could be considered a pastiche of Beverley Nichol's works which I loved as a child and still remember fondly. " Penny Down the Drain" may remind folk of " Alice in Wonderland " or " Narnia." but it is set in the 21st century. Our two sons are similarly creative as one is a journalist and the other an actor. When there is no pandemic I am the publicity secretary for Worthing Friendship Centre and listen to live music , folk and jazz.
