The Restless Wave
Told from the perspectives of Nell, her mother and her grandfather, this immensely empathetic novel explores the complexities of family dynamics, as each generation tries to make sense of the world and the events of their time.
Excellent . . . A more complex novel [than Knowing Anna], winding three lives and different time frames together most ingeniously, illuminating several periods of the 20th century and several very significant issues. I loved it.
[On KNOWING ANNA] Beautifully written, emotionally resonant and truthful, this is an inspiring novel about the many faces of love and the struggle to come to terms with grief.
Sarah Meyrick's latter-day pilgrims are as congenial companions for the reader as for one another. A highly accomplished debut filled with wisdom and grace.
Knowing Anna is an easy read . . . but it is not lightweight. Some of the portrayals of grief and how we experience it are profound and memorable. At times I laughed, at times I wept; whenever I had to put the book down, I looked forward to picking it up again . . . There is a rhythm to [Knowing Anna], as to pilgrimage itself, which is both compelling and healing.
[An] ambitious first novel . . . Meyrick writes with clarity and lack of fuss, avoiding the clichés of grief; she is also not sentimental about the balm of belief.
Clever, honest, perceptive
