I tried. This book was really interesting in the beginning, but the middle really dragged for me.

The Sea Gate by Jane Johnson is a historical fiction story that once again uses the dreaded dual time-line format. In this case I actually liked how the story was told as many of the same people appeared in both story lines, one set in WW II while the other is set today. The story unfolds in Cornwall and the isolated cliffs and beaches play an important role in the story.

The story deals with a broken family, and the secrets that they kept. Rebecca’s mother has died and while going through her things she finds letters from a cousin asking for help. As her life is going nowhere at the moment, Becky heads off to Cornwall to help this elderly cousin, Olivia. The plot jumps back and forth between Becky and how she is won over by the curmudgeonly old woman as she builds a new life in Cornwall and Olivia as a young woman during the war and the dramatic events that were to change her life.

While there were some aspects of the story that I found a little hard to swallow, I did fall in love with Olivia’s grey parrot, Gabriel, who was featured in both story-lines. Overall, The Sea Gate was an absorbing story that included love, adventure, murder and courage.

The Tenth Gift is one of those dual POV books popular now in women's fiction. Julia is dumped by her affair partner and is given a book from 1625 with needlework designs and a handwritten story by the woman who owned it. Catherine was from Cornwall, captured by Barbary pirates, and taken to what is present-day Morocco.
As is usual for me with these types of books, I'm not as interested in the present-day scenario as in the historical events. Cat is fascinating, a servant girl and needlewoman who is literate and tells a fascinating story about her capture and subsequent events. It's a part of history I was unfamiliar with and found very interesting. The Julia sections were quite as good; Julia has been having a long-term affair with her best friend's husband, who gives her the book as a parting gift. He tries to get it back when he discovers that the notations make it quite valuable. None of the characters in the present-day sections came off very well, and it seemed like a lot of drama for no reason but to pad the book.
I still enjoyed the historical story and wish that the entire book was just that.
