On 26 December 2004, honeymooner Trisha Broadbridge and her husband, Melbourne footballer Troy, stepped on to the beach of Phi Phi Island - a stunning Thai resort. Moments later they were engulfed by the deadly tsunami and Troy, along with thousands of others in the region, was swept to his death.

This is Trisha's amazing story of how she survived that day and the agonising months that followed as she grappled to come to terms with her loss. Yet even as she crumbled inside, she was determined to create something good out of the devastation. Trisha had a troubled childhood, and she and Troy had often talked about setting up a Trust to start a school in Thailand. Together with the help of the Melbourne Football Club and Reach, Trisha is raising funds through the Broadbridge Foundation to reconstruct the Phi Phi Island School in memory of Troy and the other lives lost on that Boxing Day.

Beyond the Wave is more than just an account of this horrific event and its aftermath. It's a portrait of a young woman who's faced many challenges. It's about finding the love of her life and making sacrifices as a ‘footballer's wife'; it's about finding a way forward through grief. Trisha's story is one of gritty determination to create something that would honour her husband and bring hope to a shattered community.
