From the blurb: Maya is a young woman bringing up her child alone. Eight-year-old Charlie means everything to her. Then one day Maya finds a lump in her breast. She has to manage it all: her illness and treatment, her increasingly uncertain future as well as caring for Charlie. She must also face up to the biggest questions of all. There is one thing that keeps her going - she knows that at all times she can retreat to the local pool or slip into the sea, and swim... This moving and haunting novel is Jackie Davis' much-awaited follow-up to the well-received Breathe. With this beautifully written second novel Davis confirms her place as one of New Zealand's most accomplished writers.
