Daniel Nordal is caretaker and sole occupant of a rocky paradise on the Norwegian coast, in self-imposed exile by the demons of his own nature and by a past he cannot forget. When his island is threatened by an American developer, Nordal finds himself thrust into new and turbulent waters. The trust of a young girl, a near-tragedy, the steadfast loyalty of a woman who loves him, lead him at last toward self-understanding and new directions. A novel rich in the textures of the sea and of sailing, of human frailty in a harsh and beautiful world.
