Swimming is compelling novel about female friendship, creativity, unexpected childlessness, and the potency of long distance swimming.

Kate is a teacher and a writer, but she has never been a mother. She believes she has a good and satisfying life until a chance encounter with her ex-husband leads Kate back to an unfinished novel written twenty years earlier in which she described the impact on herself and others of her infertility, and of the betrayal that ends her marriage. Shifting between the past of ‘Writing Sarah’ and the present, the double narrative enables both Kate and the reader to confront and come to terms with the past.

Set in the western suburbs of Melbourne and on the surf beaches of the Great Ocean Road, Swimming is about loss and survival, betrayal and revenge, friendship and love. Beautifully paced, this is a novel that will resonate with anyone whose life hasn’t turned out as planned.
