When Grace's father dies she is left with an uncaring mother and a brother, Chris, who becomes the centre of her world of sea and sand on the windswept North Norfolk coast. Grace's mother remarries, and her rich stepfather pays for Chris to go to boarding school. Knowing that his dream is to become a doctor, Grace lets him go. The price she pays for her brother's dream is her own nightmare in the hands of her stepfather. She finds a way to escape by pretending she is somewhere safe, by turning into something else. But how safe is the sea? How long can you hold your breath before you drown? When Grace, in desperation, turns to the sea for help what will the sea demand from her in return? This poignant story of love and loss pulls no punches. It carries us through sunshine and shadow to a terrible end that must become, somehow, a new beginning...
