Signed and inscribed by author inside front cover. No Dust Jacket. ; Sharply in contrast to the frantic tempo of the city she fears, Letty Fraser's seaside village of Colins Cove, Nova Scotia, life appears to be slow-paced and simple. Yet, in the space of a few months, a youthful Letty experiences the widest range of emotions from sorrow to joy, from pain to peace, from restraint to love.Temptation in the form of a man unlike any she has known challenge her values. Although she would fly, free as a seabird, her actions are constrained by principles as fixed as the rock-bound home that she loves. The solidarity of her familiar kitchen table becomes the symbol of her emotional security.
Against the background of war, Letty becomes a woman capable of decisions having deep consequences to a number of her Colins Cove neighbors. Looking inward for strength, she is able to keep promises made, even to the mother she has never known.
