PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Ocean at the End of the Lane Sussex England A middle aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral Although the house he lived in is long gone he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road where when he was seven he encountered a most remarkable girl Lettie Hempstock and her mother and grandmother He hasn t thought of Lettie in decades and yet as he sits by the pond a pond that she d claimed was an ocean behind the ramshackle old farmhouse the unremembered past comes flooding back And it is a past too strange too frightening too dangerous to have happened to anyone let alone a small boy .

Forty years earlier a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road Like a fuse on a firework his death lit a touchpaper and resonated in unimaginable ways The darkness was unleashed something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy And Lettie magical comforting wise beyond her years promised to protect him no matter what .

A groundbreaking work from a master i The Ocean at the End of the Lane i is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out It is a stirring terrifying and elegiac fable as delicate as a butterfly s wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark
