I thoroughly enjoyed this true story of a high-flying Sydney journalist’s retreat from the rat-race to the idyllic, watery heaven of Pittwater following a mental breakdown precipitated by the deaths of her husband and brother from cancer. She later has to contend with her own cancer diagnosis. Her efforts to heal herself are uplifting, her honesty is admirable, and her descriptions of her environment are intensely beautiful and evocative. Yes, she is impulsive, makes some poor decisions and isn’t always considerate but her courage, generosity and humanity shine through.
