Summary
"Sensitive but practical, Charlotte Tradescome has accepted the emotional reticence of her older, work-obsessed husband, Henry. Still, she hopes to create a rich life for their three-year-old daughter, Fiona. So when Henry inherits his family's ancestralhome in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, she uproots them from their cramped Manhattan apartment and settles them permanently in the historic fishing community on Cape Cod. To raise money to live on, Charlotte sells off part of Tradescome Point, inadvertently fueling the ongoing conflict between wealthy newcomers and locals, who have always made their living from the sea. Many of the townspeople easily dismiss Charlotte and her family as 'washashores.' A rare exception is Darryl Stead, an oyster farmer with modest dreams and an open heart, with whom Charlotte feels the soul-deep connection she's been missing. When she learns that the dispute arising from the sale of her land jeopardizes Darryl's livelihood, she find the courage to fight back--and ultimately transforms the way she sees herself, the town, and the people she loves'--Cover, p. 4
