I have just started reading The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland. A young woman washes up on the beach with retrograde amnesia; no idea who she is or how she got there. I have just barely started, but so far it is well-written and believable. Something awful happened to Mia; she has waking dreams of the attack that may have preceded her near-drowning, and she has uneasy feelings of impending doom and a general distrust of people around her.
No, I don’t remember anyone. Just the woman who found me on the beach. She had a dog, I think. Poppy. That’s the dog’s name. She wore glasses. The woman, I mean, not the dog.’ I give a short strangled laugh. I must sound like a lunatic. ‘Sorry,’ I add.
The Girl from the Sea, Shalini Boland
Washed up on the beach, she can’t remember who she is. She can’t even remember her name. Turns out, she has a perfect life – friends and family eager to fill in the blanks.
