Summary
"Samuel has lived alone for a long time, with only the occasional visits from a boat bringing supplies and, in the past, a government representative from the mainland. He maintains the lighthouse and his chickens, and watches the waves. Then one morning he finds the sea has brought someone to offer companionship and to threaten his solitude... An intense and powerful novel about guilt and fear, friendship and rejection; and the meaning of home."--Back cover
