She takes us from the first emergence of life through its turbulten transitions, and awakens us to the life-giving and life-sustaining qualities of the sea and our relationship with water. Once you dive into these pages, there's no turning back. You will become completely engulfed by Rachel's magic voice as she tells the ocean's story."--The WomanSource Catalog and Review
