ABOUT THE BOOK
Separated From the Sea is the debut short story collection from award-winning author, Amanda Huggins.
Crossing oceans from Japan to New York and from England to Havana, these stories are filled with a sense of yearning, of loss, of not quite belonging, of not being sure that things are what you thought they were. They are stories imbued with pathos and irony, humour and hope.
Evie meets a past love but he's not the person she thinks he is; a visit to the most romantic city in the world reveals the truth about an affair; Satseko discovers an attentive neighbour is much more than that; Eleanor’s journey on the London Underground doesn't take her where she thought it would.
SEPARATED FROM THE SEA by Amanda Huggins is an eclectic collection of short stories that span the kaleidoscope of emotions and is a book to be treasured.
Spanning continents, these stories are brimming with emotions and you will feel these character's sorrow, loss, yearning, as they search for what is missing which is often impossible. From old lovers to a grieving mother, from familiar places and situations to the exotic, there really is something for everyone among these pages. Some stories are more powerful and haunting than others but there is something about each and every one which will make you stop and take your time to really get to the heart and meaning of the tale in question.
SEPARATED FROM THE SEA by Amanda Huggins is a must-read collection for short story fans but also for readers, like myself, that don't always venture into the short story genre - these stories may not be long but they are powerful.
Amanda Huggins lives in Yorkshire and works in engineering. Separated From the Sea is her first full-length short story collection. Her fiction and travel writing have been published in a number of literary journals, guidebooks and anthologies, as well as in magazines and newspapers including The Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Mslexia, and Wanderlust. In 2014 Amanda won the British Guild of Travel Writers New Travel Writer Award, and her flash fiction collection, Brightly Coloured Horses, was published by Chapeltown Books in 2018.
