Dry Dock is the second novel by Marina da Nadous. It’s the sequel to the glorious, exciting and heart-wrenching tale, The Celestial Sea.
Take a middle-class English mother, her husband and family from the contentment of a teaching life in the south of England, to the wild, green hills of a New Zealand coastal town – then introduce her to a creative New Zealand-born teacher, who enters both her family life and the hidden depths of her heart. The result is a deeply evocative romance and adventure that shakes the foundations of her marriage, exposes well-buried inner-secrets, confronts deeply-held religious beliefs and leads them to a new understanding.
Unfolding amongst the beautiful scenery of New Zealand, the spiritual passion that grows between them is aided by their private text messaging; their love growing through the rocks and whirlpools of everyday family and school life.
Richly sensual and deeply poetic, Dry Dock shows readers the humorous, playful, despairing and troubled twists and turns of their powerful relationship.
