Told by a man who loses his daughter while swimming one summer, Marée montante is the story of how he will find her again, on earth or thousands of miles underwater.

It’s about a man driven by the will to take the time to say goodbye, like a father who stays by the bed with his child long after the light has been switched off. And when he finds his daughter, he will not let her go.

A little gem of a book, sad yet beautiful and enchanting, a lesson in finding happiness through loss, and an ode to the pleasure of letting yourself be swept away by the fond memories of a time gone by.
