I finally got everything down from the attic, and my freakout level is HIGH!!! There is so much stuff piled in the garage, and I have no clue where to begin. Correction… I will begin by making myself a sandwich and sit my tushy down in the backyard. There is so much stuff that I lost my poor little pup Junebug for 10 minutes. I found her in a pile of baby blankets. She might have claimed one for herself. I found a few treasures and that was fun, but mostly it is just items I have no use for. The day will come soon when all of this will be behind me, but for now I will keep saying in my head, “One step at a time. One sandwich at a time.”

From international bestselling author Marc Levy comes a witty and beguiling novel of one woman’s unexpected journey to follow her destiny.

Alice Pendelbury believes everything in her life is pretty much in order — from her good friends to her burgeoning career. But even Alice has to admit it’s been an odd week. Not only has her belligerent neighbor, Mr. Daldry, suddenly become a surprisingly agreeable confidant, but he’s encouraging her to take seriously the fortune-teller who told her that only by traveling to Turkey can Alice meet the most important person in her life.

What’s more, the peculiarly insistent Mr. Daldry has even agreed to finance Alice’s trip — one that against all reason seems to be predestined. It’s on this journey, crazy from the outset and strangely irresistible, that Alice will find out that nothing in her life is real, that her past is not true, and that the six people she’s about to encounter will shape her future in ways she could never have dreamed.

It’s a day just like any other day… until something utterly unfamiliar suddenly lands in your back yard.

Susan is the epitome of the happy housewife, contentedly conducting her daily ritual of cleaning her home and keeping everything just as it should be. Wrapped up in her own little world within those familiar walls, she hardly notices the altogether different arrival in her own back yard.

She may ignore the sudden shaking beneath her slippered feet, she might even neglect to spot the conspicuous sight itself — but she can’t evade the stench.

Something’s wrong. Very wrong. And Susan’s incapable of determining just what to do about the uninvited eyesore in her back yard.

Turning to her best friend for help with the impromptu emergency threatening to shake up her very existence and happy home, Susan combines efforts with neighbor Trisha to decipher the composition and meaning of the frightfully large and utterly unpleasant new arrival.

But are these two women really capable of realizing the gift of new awareness they’ve just been given by an unseen entity? Or will they continue to fail to see the world that exists out there?

What a difference a day makes… unless you choose to ignore it.

4.2 Stars (75 Reviews)
Genre: History | Literature & Fiction

FREE for a limited time

“A nautical war buffs feast… [McCutchan] keeps an authoritative hand on the wheel and his descriptions of battles at sea ring with laconic truth.” — The New York Times Book Review

In this action-packed nautical thriller set during World War II, Lieutenant-Commander Cameron finds himself out of his element and undertaking a dangerous mission in neutral waters.

During the height of World War II and just returned from naval adventures in the South Atlantic, Lieutenant-Commander Cameron is given fresh draft orders to report to the mysterious “Mr Cambridge”.

Despite his protestations that he’s “no cloak-and-dagger man, sir”, Cameron is sent on a dangerous mission to ‘cut out’ a German vessel from a neutral port.

Flown to Gibraltar, Cameron must travel, disguised as a Spanish workman, to the frontier town of La Linea, where he is to meet a British agent.

The plan is to infiltrate the Kaiserhof, a ship of crucial technological importance, capable of wreaking havoc on the allied naval defenses. Once infilitrated, Cameron’s mission is to take the ship intact to England.

All seems to go to plan, as Cameron and his team of seamen make their trek to the port of Cadiz, until Mr Cambridge turns up unexpectedly.

Cameron and his hand-picked party of seamen are determined to take over control of the Kaiserhof and steal Herr Hitler’s prize from right under his nose.

But will the commander be able to cut through the intrigue and carry out his mission succesfully? Will he be able to pilot the Kaiserhof through storm, treachery and enemy waters to safe harbor?

On Land and Sea is a gripping and atmospheric nautical adventure, a World War II espionage story, told by an author with a lifetime of experience, both in storytelling and the British Navy. It was originally called Cameron and the Kaiserhof.
