The Shelly Bay Ladies Swimming Circle

Green, Sophie2020
Books, Manuscripts
It's the summer of 1982. 'The Man from Snowy River' is a box office hit and Paul Hogan is on the TV. In a seaside suburb of NSW, housewife Theresa Howard takes up swimming. She wants to get fit; she also wants a few precious minutes to herself. So at sunrise each day she strikes out past the waves. From the same beach, the widowed Marie swims. With her husband gone, bathing is the one constant in her new life. After finding herself in a desperate situation, 25-year-old Leanne only has herself to rely on. She became a nurse to help others, even as she resists help herself. Elaine has recently moved from England. Far from home without her adult sons, her closest friend is a gin bottle. In the waters of Shelly Bay, these four women find each other.
