The Shelly Bay Ladies Swimming Circle (Paperback)Sophie Green (author)
- 5+ in stock
In a seaside suburb on Australia's golden coast, four women head to the water to swim every day.
Housewife Theresa wants to get fit; she also wants a few precious minutes to herself. So at sunrise each day she strikes out past the waves.
From the same beach, the widowed Marie swims. With her husband gone, it is the one constant in her new life.
Elaine takes to the sea having recently moved from England, while Leanne is twenty-five years old and only has herself to rely on.
In the waters of Shelly Bay, these four women find each other. They will survive bluebottle stings and heartbreak, they will laugh so hard they swallow water, and they will plunge their tears into the ocean's salt.
Most of all, they will cherish their newfound friendship, each and every day.
