I had no warning before evil befell me.
I'd forgotten how the sea around Highcliffe relentlessly pounds the land, undermining it so fiercely that the earth quickens, churns, and slips: the breakers smother all sound,
throwing off thickly salted mist that clouds vision like a cataract.  For this reason, I had no signal that someone was approaching.  Instead, I suddenly felt his breath curdling in my ear.

Great beginning - I can just see what's been described in my mind - makes me think about turbulent sea travels and definitely turbulent times. Here's my Friday meme

I misread the title as, "Bride of a Distant Wife", and I was going..."What???" Time for more coffee or a nap, that's for sure!

It does sound like a lovely book!
