Notes

Description
As a panicked world goes into lockdown in March 2020, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again friend, William. She expected to be back in a week or two. Weeks turn into months, and it's just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea.
Description
"With her trademark spare, crystalline prose--a voice infused with 'intimate, fragile, desperate humanness' (The Washington Post)--Elizabeth Strout once again turns her exquisitely-tuned eye to the inner workings of the human heart, this time following the indomitable heroine of 'My name is Lucy Barton' and 'Oh William!' through the early days of the pandemic. As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and longtime friend, William. For the next several months, it's just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea. Rich with empathy and emotion, 'Lucy by the sea' vividly captures the fear and struggles that come with isolation, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities that those long, quiet days can inspire. At the heart of this story are the deep human connections that unite us even when we're apart--the pain of a beloved daughter's suffering, the emptiness that comes from the death of a loved one, the promise of a new friendship, and the comfort of an old, enduring love."--,Provided by publisher.
