When her mother dies, Marian Easton is confronted with the task of settling the affairs of a life she no longer knows - for her mother, an unconventional artist, kept many secrets, foremost among them the identity of Marian's father. Now all Marian has to console herself with is regret over their uneasy relationship, over everything she'll never know about herself. Regret - and her mother's paintings, the best of which are a series of landscapes set in St. Ives, Cornwall. Marian's search for the truth takes her back to St. Ives, a village where artists and fisherman have coexisted for decades, and where Marian and her mother lived for just a few years when Marian was young. Digging into the past, Marian discovers that her mother's art and her own identity are irrevocably tied into St. Ives' biggest tragedy, a lifeboat disaster of 1939. The Serpentine Cave is an imagined story containing a true one: a powerful, lovingly crafted novel of memory and loss, birth and rebirth, and past regrets that still have power over the present.
