An incredibly moving collection of essays that intertwines the author’s personal life story with that of various sea creatures. Each essay introduces us to a different time in their life, and a different creature, and what struck me the most from these was a shared striving to be able to thrive in both their given elements. At times they are stories of cruelty, from the world, or others, and the ways they must adapt to survive it, while also staying true to themselves. There is much to be learned from this book, and I highly recommend it. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
