AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the not-too-distant future, and in a specially constructed marina off the US coast, Elizabeth works to communicate with a killer whale, an orca - Tachotic. Because of the nature of the project, it is very 'political' and she treads a fine line between people thinking she is mad, closing down the project and doing the work necessary to prove it is possible. Elizabeth feels she is getting very close to success, but she is getting frustrated with being so close and unable to find the key to understanding what Tachotic is trying to tell her. Tachotic himself is unsure why he has sought humans...how he can possibly convey the life of the pods..... And Elizabeth's time and energy is sometimes fragmented by her on-off relationship with Joe, her inability to put him in one compartment and her work in another. As her work takes over more and more, Joe is impatient to move on. As the human world falls victim to terrorist nuclear attacks and everything that was familiar comes under threat, ancient kinships between the land the sea re-emerge to show a different future, a future full of hope.'
