Waterstones Says

Set across three distinct time periods and featuring three brilliantly realised female protagonists, Swift's powerful novel about extinction and fast vanishing values is as thought-provoking as it is page-turning.

Shortlisted for The Arthur C. Clarke Award 2023

Three women: divided by time, connected by the ocean.

Marine biologist Hana Ishikawa is racing against time to save the coral of the Great Barrier Reef, but struggles to fight for a future in a world where so much has already been lost.

Seventeen-year-old Judith Holliman escapes the monotony of Sydney Town during the nineteenth century, when her naval captain father lets her accompany him on a voyage, unaware of the wonders and dangers she will soon encounter.

Telma Velasco is hunting for a miracle in a world ravaged by global heating: a leafy seadragon, long believed extinct, has been sighted. But as Telma investigates, she finds hope in unexpected places. Past, present and future collide in this powerful elegy to a disappearing world - and vision of a more hopeful future.
