‘I want to be a pioneer, an explorer, an adventurer. I want to experience something of this world we live in.’
In 1755, a spirited young woman leaves her comfortable island home of Guernsey and travels to Nova Scotia, Canada to join her fisherman husband. But Elise’s dreams of adventure soon become her reality, and what follows is a life of fear, cold, mosquitos, fish, beauty, passion, loss and fulfilment.
Song of the Sea tells how the sea links and dominates the life, love and loss experienced by Elise, as we follow her on her voyage of self-discovery.
“Song of the Sea is a story of incredible strength, courage, survival, resilience and love. Set in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s, it is a fictional account, woven within documented historical events. This beautiful story gives a voice to the role of women and bears witness to the turmoil of the time.” – Susan Marchand-Terrio, Executive Director, Isle Madame Historical Society
