You, Me, and the Sea

(2019)
A novel by

 
 
From the USA Today best-selling author of All the Summer Girls and Dog Crazy comes a spellbinding and suspenseful tale inspired by Wuthering Heights that illuminates the ways in which hope - and even magic - can blossom in the darkest of places.

To find her way, she must abandon everything she loves....

As a child, Merrow Shawe believes she is born of the sea: strong, joyous, and wild. Her beloved home is Horseshoe Cliff, a small farm on the coast of Northern California where she spends her days exploring fog-cloaked bluffs, swimming in the cove, and basking in the light of golden sunsets as her father entertains her with fantastical stories. It is an enchanting childhood, but it is not without hardship - the mystery of Merrow's mother's death haunts her, as does the increasingly senseless cruelty of her older brother, Bear.

Then, like sea glass carried from a distant land, Amir arrives in Merrow's life. He's been tossed about from India to New York City and now to Horseshoe Cliff to stay with her family. Merrow is immediately drawn to his spirit, his passion, and his resilience in the face of Bear's viciousness. Together, they embrace their love of the sea and their growing love for each other.

But the ocean holds secrets in its darkest depths. When tragedy strikes, Merrow is forced to question whether Amir is really the person she believed him to be. In order to escape the danger she finds herself in and find her own path forward, she must let go of the only home she's ever known and the only boy she's ever loved....

Praise for this book

"An honest and engaging look at the complicated and powerful bonds of female friendship. Donohue takes us on a weekend reunion full of secrets, resentment, and regret-in other words, once you start this book, you won’t be able to put it down!" - Jennifer Close

"You, Me, and the Sea is an enchanting and imaginative story about soulmates, family, and forgiveness. With its sparkling allure of Northern California’s rugged coast and aura of mystery and romance, I was swept away by this evocative modern take on Wuthering Heights." - Elise Hooper

"Nail-biting secrets, heart-pounding passion, and lush prose hurl this novel to its sweeping conclusion. For readers, like me, who wondered what if for Heathcliff and Catherine, this is a genuine treat." - Sarah McCoy

"Every Wild Heart is Meg Donohue’s finest novel to date -- emotionally resonant, absorbing and funny in all the right places, it’s a portrait of mothers and daughters, missteps and triumphs, and love in all of its bewildering and delightful disguises." - Meg Mitchell Moore

"Deliciously engaging. Donohue writes with charm and grace. What could be better than friendship and cupcakes?" - Rebecca Rasmussen
