Theyve built their dream home, raised a happy family, and are still madly in love. Hope Kennedy seems to have it all- her dream job, a luxurious apartment, and best of all shes married to her soulmate, Niall.However, their lives tragically collide and change forever when The Great East Japanese Earthquake strikes. Giant forces were explosively released, violently shaking the earth and unleashing a series of killer waves that raced across the Pacific Ocean at the speed of a jet airliner.
The earthquake had the largest duration of faulting ever observed, lasting between eight and ten minutes- the most devastating minutes of Kerry Darcys life.Kerry struggles to pick up the pieces of her shattered world, while maintaining her desperate search to find her missing husband. Pregnant and alone, Hope Kennedy is left wondering what happened to the man she loves so much. The women refuse to give up on their husbands, believing that the tumultuous events of the previous months will be resolved, and their lives will be restored to normal.
They want answers, but neither woman has any idea about the shocking secret which has been hidden from them and their husbands. The tsunami results in a tide which sweeps in the most profound changes in the lives of both women.
Its a swell which propels them on the long road to discovering the truth. The killer wave has taken its fateful hold on time and place. It ruptures the present, warps the future, replaces order with confusion, confidence with trepidation, and control with powerlessness. Lives are ended for some, changed forever for others, and a most significant chain of events is about to unfold with catastrophic results.
