Jeremy Pages novel Sea Change is a harrowing masterpiece which captures one man battling his own private purgatory between heaven and hell. Guy must come to terms with the loss of his daughter and separation from his wife. He has found solace on a 1920’s dutch barge known as the flood sailing the estuaries for five years.
He recreates a world of what could have been in a set of diaries. It his own magical world where his family has moved forward as if his daughter never passed to an unfortunate death.
The Sea Change captures the beauty of the moments, the quiet at sea, and the unpredictability of the ocean. It is this unpredictability of the oncoming storm that Guy must face in order to move forward and make peace with his own life.
The Flood has been magnificent, he thinks. He’s miles and miles from shore, there are no lights on the horizon, no sign that man has lived or is alive at any place; the sea and the sky are alone as having no touch of man upon them. His world is this boat. Nothing else.
It is this calling to the sea to tempt the floods fate that he must find his future. He must move forward from the what ifs to seek a new light. His solitary time on his boat forces him to realize that he must struggle from the past and move forward as he fights the last of his demons on the Ocean.
How do you prepare to weather the storm?
