Synopsis

A beautifully rendered family drama set in England between the 1950s and the present, following the life of Martha, a woman who has swum the English Channel ten times, and the complex relationships she has with her husband, her children and her close friends.Debut author, Best, a native of Toronto, presents a wholly authentic tragicomic portrait of family life as it is buffeted by illness, intolerance, anger, failure and regret. A mature, accomplished and compelling new voice; a novel soaked in empathy and salt water.

Customer Reviews

This brilliantly written story had me laughing, it had me crying and, most of all, it had me thinking about this family for days after I finished reading the book. I couldn't put it down and was sad when it was done as I wanted to know more. I'd love to see this book made into a movie!
