Summary

Two young people find themselves thrown together as they struggle to survive in the middle of the ocean after separately surviving shipwrecks.

Bill is lost and alone on an endless sea after a storm sinks his yacht. His future seems as unpredictable as the ocean itself.

Everything changes when he rescues another survivor from a different wreck. She is Aya, from the nomadic Berber tribe.

As hope of rescue fades, Aya tells tales of magic inspired by Shahrazad, who wove 1001 stories to save her life.

In the grip of hunger, at the mercy of the burning sun and the deadly deep, they began a heart-stopping journey to find home.
