This is a beautiful and tragic love story told through the letters explorer George Bass exchanged with his new, young wife Elizabeth during their very short marriage. Theirs was a passionate and extraordinary love affair carried out across the oceans, a love that Elizabeth never let go of as she wrote increasingly despairing letters to her husband, already lost at sea.
