The story of two sisters and the boy next door...
The acclaimed author of Firefly Beach and other New York
Times bestsellers, Luanne Rice explores the powerful bonds
that connect old friends, and the joy of life's unexpected
second chances. Now, returning once more to the Connecticut
beach town at the center of many of her most beloved
novels, she touches our hearts with a spellbinding story of
a love lost--and saved--by the power of what was always
meant to be . . .
Schoolteacher Rumer Larkin never felt the need to stray
from Hubbard's Point. Rich with legends of seafaring
spirits and lost treasures, the rustic village still echoes
with the memories of Rumer's past--even after those she
loved have left. But now, so many summers after Zeb Mayhew
broke her heart, he has returned with his teenage son, and
Rumer knows her quiet life will never be the same again.
Zeb has come back to hoping to reconnect with his son, with
the past and all its mistakes. Suddenly facing Rumer again,
Zeb discovers where he belongs. He could never forget the
girl who used to climb onto his roof with him to watch the
stars. But neither Zeb nor Rumer knows if it's too late to
do more than regret the path not taken--or if every path
leads us back to the one true love of our life . . .
