Mara’s parents - a boxer and a ballerina - chose the island as a refuge from the turbulence of their previous lives. They wanted to bring up their children somewhere special and safe. But the island and the sea don’t care what people want, and when they claim a price from her family, Mara’s world unravels. It takes the arrival of Pearl, mysterious and irresistible, to light a spark in Mara again, and allow her to consider a different story for herself. A tale of love and grief, and the gap between fairy tales and real life.
