Synopsis

To Touch the Whale by Lynne Mitchell

Life along the bay is slow, and hot and full of deep rooted memories. For all those that live along this sandy shore, they have to be weather- tough and strong as the salt encrusted shells to survive the hard tide pull of their lives. Katherine, an unfulfilled artist, goes to a cabin by the bay to rediscover her art and her life before it is too late. For some, the dark, reflective waters can reveal too much, but Katherine is determined to dive in and confront the faces of her past and cut loose the anchors that have left her feeling stranded in place. Along the way she is helped by Annie and Amos, two old survivors with stories of their own. Together they will peer into the slow, hot tides of this Southern coast and see things, which, for some, can take nearly a lifetime to see at all.
