“Though your sister’s eyes are blind, she can see with her mind.”

Called “one of the most poetic descriptions of the ocean you’ll ever read,” by BookPage, Estelle Condra’s See the Ocean is the story of one young girl’s trip to the ocean with her family. Beautiful and moving, its accompanying oil illustrations are as incandescent as its prose. See the Ocean proves true the adage that it is only with the heart—and not the eye—that one can truly see. Today, there are +60,000 copies in print.

“This is a book you’ll want to reread immediately.”

“Condra has created a thoughtful, sometimes feisty heroine whose inner vision is more acute than other people’s powers of observation.”
