A normal life. To be a good person. To be loved by someone. To have a home and enough food. That's what Sandy wanted. But simple wants can become unimaginable challenges.

Meanwhile, the world can deliver undreamt-of beauty, then abruptly turn upside-down.

The real-life storyline through this series of poems (a variety of short forms in everyday language) follows what Sandy thought was an ordinary existence, starting as a typical girl in upstate New York. Maybe her family had more strife than usual, maybe they moved more than most, maybe she was lucky to find a perfect husband and move to an island. Perhaps every bit of Sandy's experience was of use, yet nothing could prepare her for the midlife events that devastated her world and kept on coming.

Even as a youngster, she was absorbed with big questions: - What is good? - What does home mean? - How does love work when the worst happens? (Readers will find their own questions echoing.) Answers fail when everything suddenly tilts, then shifts, shifts again, and again, like tsunami-on-tsunami.

Amid breaking waves, what can Sandy find to stay afloat?
