Summary
"On a ... beach in Jamaica, Decca Aitkenhead's life changed forever. Her four-year-old son was paddling peacefully at the water's edge when a wave pulled him out to sea. Her partner Tony swam out and saved their son's life--then drowned before her eyes. When Decca and Tony first met, a decade earlier, she was a renowned Guardian journalist, profiling leading politicians of the day; he was a dreadlocked criminal with a history of drug dealing and violence ... Exploring race and redemption, privilege and prejudice, All at Sea is a ... story of love and loss, of how one couple changed each other's lives, and of what a sudden death can do to the people who survive"--
