This sacred romance between two lovers fills the pages of an English housewife's on-going diary, continuing on from Marina de Nadous' previous books; The Celestial Sea, Dry Dock and Setting Sail.
Calm Waters & No Horizon continue the tale of Mouse and her lover, Adrian, who find themselves embracing an illicit but powerful connection they cannot deny. Continuing their journey of self-discovery, they plead for understanding from those who have become entangled in their moral dilemma.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of coastal New Zealand, Mouse and Adrian record their lengthy correspondence, which details an intense, spiritual passion and magical connection. Mouse struggles as to which parts of her romance to share with the blank pages of her diary and she begins to realise that even the smallest details have consequences.
The reader accompanies the protagonists' every move and thought, following the deep intimacy and magical parallel Mouse and Adrian share within the hurly burly of domestic life. Mouse's diary draws on her thoughts about emigration, a mother's domestic world, family life, intimacy and adventure.
The ultimate escape from the trials of everyday life, Calm Waters & No Horizon are thought-provoking, deeply poetic and will appeal to readers who enjoy romance, spiritual possibility and sacred love.
