Painting a lush and vivid picture of the coral reef off of Queensland Australia, Di Morrissey tells the story of Jennifer, whose traumatic childhood experience with a family beach vacation shapes her adult relationships and respect for the sea. Jennifer's problematic relationship with her mother and husband are set against the backdrop of a cay in the coral reef where marine scientists and resort vacationers coexist but shady dealings threaten to topple the delicate balance. With a sumptuous voice and sincere tone, Kate Hood performs the dramatic, personal story that carries an underlying theme of sea conservation.
