"A moving portrait of a father who, unable to save what he most loved, tried to save what could have been." -The Atlanta Journal- Constitution
From the acclaimed author of Salt comes this exquisitely written and deeply haunting novel of love and family. When a terrible tragedy changes his family forever, Guy-alone and searching for answers-embarks in his old barge on the stormy waters of the North Sea, writing in his diary about the man he might have been and the family he should have had. His voyage unfolds in unexpected ways, and when he meets two women at sea on a similar quest, Guy realizes that it just might be possible to begin his life again.
