The sea, with its tides and weather, can be peaceful and inspiring, or it can be wild and chaotic. Anna Rust's calm and rhythmic voice evokes the constantly moving ocean that intersects and shapes Hannah Stowe's life. The author grew up on the Welsh coast, where she learned to sail and surf and observe the creatures of the ocean. Here she warns of ocean acidification, rising temperatures, and the bycatch of dolphins and albatross caught in fishing nets so immense that they empty out the ocean. Rust reels the listener in with myths of the sea and tales of stomach-churning sailing voyages. She adeptly renders the immense physical pain that shoots through Stowe's spine after a serious surfing accident. The audiobook is both magical and a serious call to action.
