2015 - A South African travel writer finds herself on assignment at the Amalfi Coast of Italy.

“If within my soul, you were the music, if the sun were within you, if you really were within my soul, then yes, I could hear, within my silence, the calm evening sea.”



This was quite a unusual story, about love, travel, and also science.

Giselle was a writer who was excited to attain her first assignment, especially as she was being sent to Italy for 2 months – a dream come true for her.
Zed was a man who lived 500 years in the future, and was interested in the secrets hidden in a mental box his dog discovered on the beach.

The storyline in this followed Giselle as she began to discover Italy, and fell in love with a man called Alessandro. We also followed Zed as he began to investigate following his discovery on the beach.

The story then took a bit of a drastic turn I don’t want to say any more because of the risk of dropping spoilers, but it was a very strange and sudden turn, which then led to a very unusual ending for all involved. I have to say that I wasn’t really expecting this (obviously), and it really wasn’t the sort of thing I’ve ever come across before, and gave this book a bit of a sci-fi twist.
6 out of 10
