This week, it needs to be the perfect sunshine read, a page turner, a heart-warmer and something unique and wonderful to make your heart soar as September gets going. Cue: ‘Remarkably Bright Creatures’ by Shelby Van Pelt – the New York Times bestseller that everyone has been talking about.
Tova Sullivan, the night cleaner of Sowell Bay Aquarium has experienced so much loss in her life and needs to keep busy. Ever since her eighteen-year-old son, Erik, mysteriously vanished on a boat over thirty years ago keeping busy has helped her cope.
One night she meets Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus living at the aquarium who sees everything, but wouldn’t dream of lifting one of his eight arms for his human captors – until he forms a remarkable friendship with Tova.
