'Prose written with the pen of a poet' - Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape 'Full of wisdom and poetry and epic emotion, This is My Sea explores grief, memory and loss through vivid words and striking imagery. It echoes lost summers and the beauty of life, like a shell held to the ear' - Ed O'Loughlin, author of The Last Good Funeral of the Year Over the course of seven difficult years Miriam Mulcahy lost her mother, father and sister, each grief threatening to drown her. But instead of going under she discovered the lessons of the sea, letting the water teach her how to get through anything in life: one breath builds on another, another stroke, another kick and you will get home. THIS IS MY SEA takes our greatest fear, death, and wraps it up in language so fine and beautiful that the reader is carried along and comforted by how completely lost Miriam was and how she found solace in all the things that sustained her: books, music, art, friends, love, swimming, and of course the sea. Shortlisted for the Bookstation Lifestyle Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards 2023. For fans of The Salt Path by Raynor Winn and I Found my Tribe by Ruth Fitzmaurice.
