After a year-long road trip, Jake decides to join his sister at the sea house, unprepared for facing head on all the reasons he’s been running away since his father’s death.
Gabe just wants to find his way home.
For Gabe Summers, the remote beach at Arlington Bay is his favourite surf break, the place his family calls their second home, and where he met the only girl he’s ever loved. After living in London, Gabe’s world spins off its axis when he discovers that the girl who still haunts him has returned to Arlington Bay.
As past and present converge, old hurts, fears and memories rake up, and the ties of blood, love and loss that connect Luce, Jake and Gabe, will either keep them apart, or open the way to make changes in their lives, by realising what truly matters.
