Books Info:

Sea Glass  free pdf When an English biographer, Mr Moxton, sets out to write a story on the Rose Street Massacre of 1983, he interviews elderly Honora Beecher, one of the few remaining survivors. Centred around union labour and the textile mills of Depression-era New Hampshire, the massacre involved Honora's husband Sexton. Nearly fifty years have passed and, although she has plenty of time to reflect, the story is still hard to tell. Moxton wants to know everything and sets out to get Honora's and her late husband's life story to tell the tale. Seen from the alternating points of view of Mr Moxton and Honora Beecher, this is the story of two divergent lives, each experiencing love and loss, sorting our the past and looking for one thing and finding another.
