A man loses his daughter while swimming one summer. This little gem of a novella–sad and beautiful and spellbinding all at once–is the tale of how he strives to be reunited with her again, whether back home on dry land or thousands of miles underwater. Racked with guilt and doubt, he lingers over her memory, refusing to let her go. He imagines and reimagines the moment she slipped away from him as he searches for her behind every rock, in every bush, in every wave.

“A picture of tenderness and a true-to-life image of the gaping hole left in the heart by loss.”—World Literature Today

“A new literary voice of remarkable density.”—Le Devoir

Heartbreakingly perfect

The writing here is immaculate. With a big kiss and a thank you to the person who paired the voice of Max lloyd-jones to this project. He is spot on and is my new favorite voice talent. I recommend this book to people who love poetry and connect to the tender side of the human experience. People who are able to respect sadness and beauty in their art.
