Note What if you grew up with a seal mother and a human father? Fionnuala is such a daughter: a part-human, part-seal deaf woman who falls in love with Neela, a Hearing woman in India. While growing up with Neela's family in Tamil Nadu, she struggles with her distant parents living apart in Ireland and Indonesia. Eventually her father brings her to Venice where she becomes a mime artist. What bings them all together is the unstoppable undercurrent of ache running through the sea of their lives. -- taken from back cover.
