Lucy by the Sea Book CoverDownload or Read Online Lucy by the Sea Free eBook PDF/ePub Elizabeth Strout , From Pulitzer Prize–winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout comes a poignant, pitch-perfect novel about a divorced couple stuck together during lockdown—and the love, loss, despair, and hope that animate us even as the world seems to be falling apart.

“No novelist working today has Strout’s extraordinary capacity for radical empathy. . . . May droves of readers come to feel enlarged, comforted, and genuinely uplifted by Lucy’s story.”—The Boston Globe

With her trademark spare, crystalline prose—a voice infused with “intimate, fragile, desperate humanness” (The Washington Post)—Elizabeth Strout turns her exquisitely tuned eye to the inner workings of the human heart, following the indomitable heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton through the early days of the pandemic.

As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again friend, William. For the next several months, it’s just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea.

Rich with empathy and emotion, Lucy by the Sea vividly captures the fear and struggles that come with isolation, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities that those long, quiet days can inspire. At the heart of this story are the deep human connections that unite us even when we’re apart—the pain of a beloved daughter’s suffering, the emptiness that comes from the death of a loved one, the promise of a new friendship, and the comfort of an old, enduring love.

Lucy by the Sea Book Reviews

Lucy by the Sea
Wow - just loved reading this outstanding book that perfectly captures and expresses the loneliness of lockdowns, fears of a global Covid pandemic, sadness of losing loved ones, joys of being with others, terrors of riots and protests, importance of love and kindness and family. Just wow.

Enjoyable book about lockdown
Lucy by the Sea by Elizabeth Strout is the fourth book in her popular Amgash series. This can be read as a standalone but is so much better if you read the previous books in the series. Lucy by the Sea is a fascinating look into a divorced couple and their experience with the COVID pandemic and lockdown. Lucy Barton is still grieving her husband, David’s death almost a year ago. Her ex-husband William calls her and tells her he wants to take her out of the city, to Maine, in order to avoid the new virus that is just starting to spread in New York City. Lucy is skeptical but eventually agrees to go with William to a small town on the coast of Maine for the duration of the virus. This is my second book by Elizabeth Strout and I enjoyed this much more than Oh William, and I think it’s because I was already familiar with the characters and her very unique writing style. Elizabeth Strout’s writing style is very different than anything else I’ve read before, and it’s a style you will either love for its simplicity or dislike entirely. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the book, considering the subject matter. The pandemic is a world event that affected all of us very much, and I will never forget the way the world changed. Although it’s not something I want to re-live, I did like the way this book explored the way the virus affected these characters. With Elizabeth Strout’s very frank way of writing, I saw the pandemic through the eyes of these characters and I enjoyed the way Lucy looks at the world. I highly recommend Lucy by the Sea to anyone who enjoys fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Great Book Club Pick!
William and Lucy have remained friends, despite being divorced for 20 years. They have an understanding and respect for each other, which allows for their friendship. Since Lucy’s 2nd husband died and Williams third wife left him, they have frequently seen eachother, even traveled together. When Covid-19 hit NYC, William informs Lucy that they will pack up and go to Maine to avoid the virus, since one of Williams friends had died of Covid. This book is from Lucy point of view and how they navigated life through the pandemic. Lucy has so much insight on her own life, her children’s lives and Williams which makes this book entertaining! In this book, Lucy grapples with the loss of her husband David, Covid-19 Pandemic, her adult children’s problems, friendships, political/social issues, and of course her relationship with William. How will they cope with the pandemic? What will discover about themselves and others? This book leaves it open for future books, so I hope this author will continue the story! Elizabeth Strout has a way with words that allows the reader into Lucy’s head, so they can truly understand her and how she navigates life. Perfect for book clubs as it will lead to many interesting discussions.
