About the book

The sure-footedness of a pro, an amazing debut Jeffrey Archer

Absorbing and richly observed, THE RESTLESS SEA is a masterful story of the turbulent years of the Second World War.

Three lives collide in a way that only the war makes possible

Jack, a child of the Blitz, has fled the law to become a seaman in the Merchant Navy. The frozen world of the Russian Arctic convoys may be harsh, but it opens his eyes to a new life.

While on leave in the Navys secret Scottish harbour, Jack meets Olivia, the cossetted daughter of an officer family. Free to roam, Olivia relishes the new freedom granted by war. But her family and especially the well-connected Charlie, now a fast-rising pilot dont welcome these changes. Least of all the arrival of Jack, the boy who casts doubt on each of their futures.

The war inflicts danger and social upheaval like never before. But the most unlikely friendships are forged in times when people live like they dont want tomorrow to come

About the Author

Vanessa de Haan

Vanessa de Haan is a historical fiction author, as well as a freelance journalist and editor. In 2005 she left an in-house job at The Spectator magazine in London and moved to Devon to concentrate on her own writing. She took the MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University and was a columnist on the Western Morning News for almost three years (writing under the name Zoë Kenyon).

Her first novel - The Restless Sea - is about the Merchant and Royal Navies during the Arctic convoys of the second world war, and was inspired by family stories as well as a love for the West Highlands of Scotland and the sea.

Her second novel - A Time to Live - is set on a crumbling estate in Devon between the first and second world wars.

Vanessa now lives on the Devon / Somerset border, where she is learning to lay hedges.
