Willa Carpenter is a best-selling romance writer. She’s at the top of her game and she’s only 30. She needs a rest, but the demands put on her are tremendous. When she reads of the plight of the Chesapeake watermen and their struggles to survive, she sets out to an island to find out the real story. It is out in the middle of the Bay, she finds a place of peace, a time straight out of yesterday, and the warmth of an older woman named Frances, who will change her life.
“Anna Gill took me on trip to the Chesapeake waters and to Washington D.C. without having to leave my home. She introduced to fictional characters who seemed so real they became friends.” 5 star review
