Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

To the Sea is the stunning saga from debut author Christine Dibley."To The Sea is a call to the sea passed on from mother to daughter... lyrical, evocative and deeply engrossing." Australian Arts ReviewA dangerous yearning echoes through generations.On a clear summer's day, Detective Inspector Tony Vincent answers a call-out to an idyllic Tasmanian beach house.Surrounded by family and calm waters, seventeen-year-old Zoe Kennett has inexplicably vanished.Four storytellers share their version of what has led to this moment, weaving tales which span centuries and continents.But Tony needs facts, not fiction: how will such fables lead him to Zoe and to the truth?As Tony's investigation deepens, he is drawn into a world where myth and history blur, and where women who risk all for love must pay the price through every generation.For fans of Kate Morton and Alice Hoffman.

A dangerous yearning echoes through generations.

Comment by Lynne

I found this to be a mystical story mixed with ordinaryness of solving a missing person case. The usual cast of characters the missing persons family and friends, and the detective and his team. But the story drew me in and I became engrossed wondering just what had happened to the missing girl. The Detective is drawn in too and becomes more involved with the family and the stories they tell. I have to say i did not expect the ending. which really surprised me.
