Abstract:

For Ruth Connelly, summer on the coast of Maine, in the comfortable old house that has passed through generations of her family, means a respite from the demands of her career and a chance to reconnect with her two children and her husband, Paul. But this year, beautiful sixteen-year-old Josie has changed from a spirited child into a troubled young woman, and her behavior tears at the fabric holding the Connellys together. Determined to ride out the storm of her daughter's adolescence, Ruth is unprepared for the tragedy that strikes during a day of sailing. But while the shock of grief initially forces Ruth to abandon her beloved summer home, the fate of her family tempts her to return, looking for a key to the past, and new hope for the future.
