A psychologically powerful study of the dark and delicate nature of a marriage and our need to be truly seen by those who see us every day.
Lum has always been on the outside. At eight, she was diagnosed with what we now call an intersex condition and is told she can't expect to marry. Everything is turned upside down, however, when the Blue Ridge Parkway is slated to come through her family’s farmland.
What the Waves Know is a moving, magical novel that asks us to consider the stories which tell the truth and the stories we tell ourselves.
