Which would be worse: losing your husband... ...or your only sister? Rose, a forty-something wife and mother, has never asked herself this question. But after a sailing trip one Saturday afternoon early in the season, she comes upon her husband William and her sister Anna, locked in a fiery kiss. And the answer to this question rings in her ears: worse still would be to lose one to the other.

Devastated by the betrayal, Rose moves with her teenage daughter to Shelter Island for the summer. Doubtful that the family can be saved, she focuses on her painting career in a quest for both inspiration and solace. And as she struggles to build a new life, she grows ever more isolated from her sister and her husband. Until an unexpected storm brings her face to face with the two people she loves and hates the most...
