Abstract:

Marine biologist Ben Ransome understands the sea, but not people. His 16-year-old daughter Caddie is coming to stay the summer, but the sweet, happy child he remembers has been replaced by a wounded, angry stranger who resents everything about her father. Hudson Jones has come to Monterey to find answers. The young, ambitious graduate student believes he's found a lost Steinbeck novel that hints at the author's love for his best friend. If he can prove it, his career will be made. But first, he'll need some local help in his research, and Ben just may be able to supply him with access. It's clear to Hudson that the handsome, quietly passionate Ben needs some help, too--with his life. Ben and Hudson move from tentative friendship to a surprising, revelatory relationship, even as Ben's daughter embarks on a dangerous course that will test his new happiness.--From publisher description.
