On Salmon Beach, magic happens: Mermaids speak in dreams and lives are transformed.

Maddy believes she's lost her past. On Salmon Beach she rediscovers her desires.

Nick has buried his feelings, and everything he cares about, deep within himself. On Salmon Beach he unearths his heart.

Maddy Phillips, alone for the first time, comes to the hidden community of Salmon Beach - only accessible by sea, or 200 steps down a sheer cliff - to seek refuge from a broken relationship. What she won’t acknowledge is the loss of something - and someone - much more significant.

Nick McKay moves to Salmon Beach when his baseball career and marriage abruptly end; the one person he loves - his daughter - taken from him in a bitter divorce. During the day he's the good-natured handyman to the quirky residents of the beach, but his nights are long, lonely, and filled with cruel dreams.

The past has a way of insinuating itself into the present in unimaginable ways. What we think we want, we find we don’t need. It takes courage to take that first step toward change; even more courage to know when to leave the past - and all its pain and sorrow -where it belongs.

Salmon Beach becomes Nick and Maddy's haven and meeting place; the two hundred stairs down, their first steps to transformation.

A Sea Change - a contemporary love story with crisp, provocative prose, and complex, unforgettable characters - moves through four seasons of healing in a vivid metaphorical journey with Nick and Maddy.

On Salmon Beach secrets become hopes, and those hopes become a passionate, life-altering sea change.
