Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Woman Who Walked into the Sea by Mark Douglas-Home, read by David Monteath.
The daughter who nobody wanted learns the truth about the mother she never knew.
Cal McGill is a unique investigator and oceanographer who uses his expertise to locate things - and sometimes people - lost or missing at sea. His expertise could unravel the haunting mystery of why, 26 years ago on a remote Scottish beach, Megan Bates strode out into the cold ocean and let the waves wash her away.
Megan's daughter, Violet Wells, was abandoned as a baby on the steps of a local hospital just hours before the mother she never knew took her own life. As McGill is drawn into Violet's search for the truth, he encounters a coastal community divided by obsession and grief and united only by a conviction that its secrets should stay buried....

Very soapy opera
It takes too long to get where it's supposed to be, lost interest
This is the second book by him that I have read. I have trouble liking any of his characters, and the ones I do like tend to die.
Narrator was good, kept me listening
