It's odd - until Greppers mentioned it I didn't have any doubt at all that they survived. I think that's the implication anyway as the story is largely about Kevin (via Olive's probing) getting back his own will to live.

Like McG, I had no doubt they survived, until I read other people’s doubts.

Every plot summary I have seen refers to him 'saving her'.

I think I'd quite like to see the TV miniseries now to see what they made of this.

In other news, I just finished Olive, Again tonight and loved just as much.

I just read it...
Call me a pessimist but... Not saved! In my view, regardless of Olive's shouts for help, they drown...

I can't remember and I'm not going to re-read it!
