Description
In this successor to the bestselling novel The Cay, readers learn about Timothy's life before he was shipwrecked with the young white boy, Phillip Enright, and about Phillip's life after his rescue from the cay. "Timothy's chapters sketch a murky sea of racial prejudice; readers will ache with him at his losses. Phillip's chapters, in a terse first person, depict the narrowness of his mother's world with a clarity heightened by Phillip's blindness. A journey well worth taking."-- Kirkus Reviews
