I enjoyed this book very much. Cass Bainbridge, an English lecturer, is being stalked. Who by and what for?

This novel is also focuses largely on family, and how family helps (or hinders) us in learning to identify ourselves.

The ending was a little bit predictable, but nonetheless, this is an entertaining read, that is ideal if you don't want to think too deeply. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Strange tides are acting upon Cass Bainbridge, impelling her to leave London and the comfortable home she shares with her partner to take up a lecturing job on the south coast." "But Brighton isn't the natural choice for a woman with a long-standing fear of the sea. And dealing with some of the students on her course - surly, difficult or just plain odd - against the backdrop of a series of attacks on campus, means Cass is soon finding elements of her new life distinctly disturbing." "Painful memories begin closing in on Cass; the spectre of a secret that finally tore apart her damaged childhood and changed her life forever. And soon the growing sense she is being stalked builds the whispering stream of disquiet into a wave that threatens to engulf her."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
