Summary

Can you fall in love with someone before you've even met? 

Seren MacArthur is living a life she never intended. Trying to save the Cornish seaside business her late father built - while grieving for his loss - she has put her own dreams on hold and is struggling. Until she discovers a half-finished seaglass star on her favourite beach during an early morning walk. When she completes the star, she sets into motion a chain of events that will steal her heart and challenge everything she believes. 

Jack Dixon is trying to secure a better life for daughter Nessie and himself. Left a widower and homeless when his wife died, he's just about keeping their heads above water. Finding seaglass stars completed on Gwithian beach is a bright spark that slowly rekindles his hope. 

Seren and Jack are searching for their missing pieces. But when they meet in real life, it's on the opposing sides of a battle. Jack is managing the redevelopment of a local landmark, and Seren is leading the community campaign to save it. 

Both have reason to fight - Seren for the cause her father believed in, Jack for his livelihood. But only one can win. With so much at stake, will they ever find what they are really looking for? 

Miranda Dickinson's Somewhere Beyond the Sea is a sparkling tale of love, life and finding magic where you least expect it.

Lovely and inspiring.

wonderful story that made me think of the possibilities in life and how maybe my dad is watching me too and spurring me on to step away from the 9 to 5 and into my possibilities

Really nice feel good story

Lovely story with a nice plot, great characters and stunning descriptions of Cornish life. The two person narration really adds to the experience. I would recommend to any reader, male or female.
