"Past and present are beautifully interwoven in an evocative story about claiming one's voice."
— Joy McCullough, author of Blood Water Paint

"Past and present narratives collide in this charming, romantic, and beautifully atmospheric debut. A delight." --Nora Shalaway Carpenter, author of The Edge of Anything (a Kirkus Reviews & A Mighty Girl's Best Book of the Year) and Rural Voices (an NPR Best Book of the Year)

In two parallel timelines featuring equally delightful characters, Erica George thoroughly immerses the reader in the small town atmosphere and seaswept shores of Cape Cod, where passions swell and break like the rising of the Atlantic tide. Much like a buttery lobster roll on a warm summer’s day, this tenderhearted debut was pure enjoyment from start to finish!
--Jennieke Cohen, author of Dangerous Alliance and My Fine Fellow

“Lyrical and moving, Words Composed of Sea and Sky weaves past and present into an emotional and atmospheric tale of love, family, and courage that refuses to be put down. An incredible debut!” —Rachel Bateman, author of Someone Else’s Summer

"A beautiful story about love and making your voice heard."

— School Library Journal

"There are two plucky heroines and four handsome hunks in this sweeping romance—and the author successfully juggles them all. The narrative effectively balances big, swoonworthy moments against smart character work."
— Kirkus Reviews

“Readers will enjoy the gentle humor and the romance.”
— Booklist
