This collection of stories is set in a small, seaside town. The characters are known to each other and appear briefly in each others stories. They have difficult situations to deal with and their solutions are often unexpected or harsh or, sadly, just as you would expect. The sea is a constant in their lives; for some it is integral to their livelihoods and for others a source of peace and solace.
