ByMargaret J. Carr

GRAINS OF SAND It’s the closing weeks of 1899. The Mason family return from Ceylon to make a new life in the Victorian seaside town of Southport, in the north west of England. Sarah and Alexander eagerly await the birth of their second child they, hope, will be a boy. William is born early in the new century. Then in a local park Louisa, the Mason’s lonely, confused little daughter, meets for the first time, a young ragamuffin called Millie. Their friendship will play an integral part in Louisa’s life, albeit against the strong wishes of Louisa’s father. Through family tragedy and two world wars, the Mason’s lives unfold as generation after generation, chapter after chapter, the years finally lead up to 2000. A new year, a new century and a New Millennium. Only William, born at the very start of the twentieth century lives on. His children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren decide to give this grand old man a special treat to celebrate his 100th birthday. They will give him the time of his life..
