From debut Australian author Christine Dibley comes a stunning saga set on the sweeping coasts of Tasmania and Ireland. A dangerous yearning that echoes through generations, To The Sea is a call to the sea passed on from mother to daughter… lyrical, evocative and deeply engrossing.
On a clear summer’s day, Detective Inspector Tony Vincent answers a call-out to Rosetta – an idyllic Tasmanian beach house. Surrounded by family and calm waters, seventeen-year-old Zoe Kennett has inexplicably vanished.
As four storytellers share their version of what has led to this moment, they weave tales which span centuries and continents. But this is a missing persons case and to solve it, Tony needs facts, not fiction: how will such fables lead him to Zoe and to the truth?
As Tony’s investigation deepens, he is slowly drawn into a world where myth and history blur, and where women who risk everything for love must pay the price through every generation.
