This is a lovely, quiet books perfectly suited for someone who enjoys myths and legends. It takes place in a far away future where the oceans have risen to cover most of the continents. People are divided into two groups: those who live on what is left of the land and those who spend their lives at sea. When a terrible storm ends the life of a number of a sea-traveling circus troupe, the Gracekeeper Calanish and the performer North meet for the first time. That meeting forever alters both women’s lives and leads them to a startling revelation of their changing world.
