Seriously? I Read That?

Review: Seven Tears into the Sea by Terri Farley

Posted on: March 20, 2009

Seven Tears into the SeaSeven years ago, Gwenn had a strange experience at the beach with a dark haired boy. He tells her:

“Beckon the sea, I’ll come to thee…
Shed seven tears, perchance seven years.”

It’s an experience shrouded in mystery and gossip and drives her family to move away from Gwenn’s beloved beach. Now, Gwenn has returned to Mirage Beach to help her Nana run the inn. But as Gwenn finds herself drawn more and more to the sea, she finds it impossible to forget the words the boy spoke. Have the boy’s words sealed her fate? What about the odd prophecy her Nana saw in her scrying mirror?

“The power which commands the waves will pull you back, […] Back to a reunion no mortal can imagine and no female can resist.”

Will Gwenn reunite with the boy from the beach? Gwenn must decide if destiny is unavoidable or if destiny can be a choice. Seven Tears into the Sea by Terri Farley is a rich, mythical novel, seeped in Celtic lore.

I’ll start by saying if I had known what this was really about, I probably wouldn’t have read it. Too much to suspend disbelief over, I suppose.

Anyway, I did read it and it wasn’t bad by any means. The prose is taut and has an almost forboding sense about it. The characterization is fairly well done and the plot moves at a good pace. But like I said, just not my cup of tea.

If you like Celtic mythology and folklore, you might want to pick this up.

Rating: 3.5 buckets of raw fish out of 5.
