The great Asian tsunami of December 2004 killed approximately 230,000 people. For Dr. Sonali Deraniyagala, that number still has less impact than what she saw with her own eyes: Within seconds, her husband and her two sons were drowned as they tried to outrun the sudden, violent waves; and in a hotel not far away, both her parents were washed away to almost instant death. In this poignant, yet spare and unsentimental memoir, she writes movingly of the life that she shared with the people she lost and how those memories helped her deal with her grief. Editor's recommendation.
