The Beachcomber is the story of two people, each with a dream, each lonely in different ways, and just when everything seems to be coming right for them, fate steps in to turn their worlds upside down.

The maniac driver - who Tom is sure intended to kill them all - has never been found. Now, a year later, he needs to be alone to deal with the pain and contemplate his future. Kitty Morris has tried to cling on to her zest for life and her sense of humour through times of pain and loneliness.
