Ostlere writes about the year following the disappearance of her brother and his girlfriend during what was supposed to be a routine, ten-day sailing trip from Ireland to Madeira. It's not so much about any rescue attempt, although she does visit both their destination and the starting point, but about coming to terms with the grief and the strain David's near-certain death places on the remaining family relationships.

Lysbeth Fraser enthralling read, tragic event with no answers to the family remaining. What responsibilities do we have to others when making weighty decisions that David and Sarah took? a poignant reminder that no man or woman is an island.
