The Sea Lady by Margaret Drabble
The Sea Lady tells the story of Ailsa Kelman and Humphrey Clark, both on their way to receive honorary degrees at a university where they spent holidays as children. It will be their first meeting in three decades. They both think about their pasts as their lives are ready to merge again. They met as children and married as adults. He became a marine biologist and she became a feminist celebrity, and their lives eventually ventured down their different paths. Margaret Drabble explores the pasts of their lives that shaped their identities as they step into an unknown future. The Sea Lady has received mostly positive reviews with Scotland on Sunday saying, "By turns funny, painful and written with the considered sobriety that marks out so many of Drabble's novels, The Sea Lady is a potent tribute to lost dreams and harsh realities."
