A beautiful, poignant read. In 2004, at a beach resort on the coast of Sri Lanka, Sonali Deraniyagala & her family – parents, husband & sons were swept away by a terrible tsunamiOnly Sonali survived to tell their tale. This is her account of the nearly incomprehensible event & its aftermath. Describes how, within minutes, things changed before her eyes. Her family was lost, washed somewhere ‘far away’. She writes frankly about her loss, nostalgic of days before the tidal wave. I didn’t feel as if I was going to cry while reading Wave. I felt as if my heart might stop. Numb. The most exceptional book about grief & healing I’ve ever read, an extraordinary memoir.
