From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Living on a sprawling English estate doesn’t change the fact that twenty-year-old Laura Elliott-Stratford feels homeless.
The year is 1920, and it has been six years since Laura’s beloved father passed away – since Laura’s mother married a British Earl and whisked Laura from her home in Virginia to the green expanses of Stratford. Lonely, rebellious, and bitterly resentful, Laura is especially vulnerable to the influence of two new people who enter her world: Graham, her stepfather’s handsome new accountant, and Sarah, the youngest daughter of one of Birmingham’s toughest families. Two sides of Laura are awakened, and they cannot peacefully coexist inside her. Laura is faced with the decision of choosing who she will be, and neither choice is without consequence.
Across the Formidable Sea follows one woman’s search for home and happiness against the vibrant backdrop of 1920’s England – a world whose priorities and values are shifting as quickly as Laura’s are. No matter the time or place, we are the masters of our own fate… for better or for worse.

"She had grown fond of him too, and she should have admitted it; but there her pride was still too vast, and her heart too hard to give in just yet."
"I think you know how to handle this better than what you're blustering on about. Don't give him the satisfaction of your anger when your intelligence will do more damage."
"Laura squinted as she studied him. He was lying. In someone so honest, it was like a too-small shirt. She could see him struggling and failing to get comfortable in it."
