The Wave Summary

The Wave by Kristen Crusoe

It should have been a relaxing day at the beach for Dr Clair Mercer and her family. But an argument with husband Adam distracts her from watching their four-year-old autistic son, and tragedy strikes when a sneaker wave sweeps him away. Clair's well-ordered life is plunged into madness, and after attempting to murder her husband, she walks into the ocean. Arrested, charged and awaiting trial on a locked psychiatric unit, can she discover a path to forgiveness, for herself and the husband she tried to kill? The Wave is a beautifully-written debut novel that explores the emotional complexity of family life - and how suffering, self-realisation and the power of love can heal even the most wounded bonds of trust.
