Waterstones Says

Nobody writes politically pertinent dystopias like Maja Lunde, and now the author of The History of Bees unveils a powerfully emotive story of migrant flight and the desperate measures that love drives us to. Thoughtful and compelling, The End of the Ocean is a stunning work of the imagination.

Exclusive Sprayed edges and an exclusive Q&A. 

In 2019, seventy-year-old Signe sets out on a hazardous voyage to cross an entire ocean in only a sailboat. She is haunted by the loss of the love of her life, and is driven by a singular and all-consuming mission to make it back to him.

In 2041, David flees with his young daughter, Lou, from a war-torn Southern Europe plagued by drought. They have been separated from their rest of their family and are on a desperate search to reunite with them once again, when they find Signe’s abandoned sailboat in a parched French garden, miles away from the nearest shore.

As David and Lou discover personal effects from Signe’s travels, their journey of survival and hope weaves together with Signe’s, forming a heartbreaking, inspiring story about the power of nature and the human spirit.
