Buddy Boyle lives year-round with his family in unfashionable Seaville, New York, in a cramped little house on the bay. Skye Pennington spends the summers nearby on lavish estate complete with ocean view and a butler named Peacock.
But Skye and Buddy fall in love anyway. And every once in a while they visit Buddy's estranged grandfather, who makes them forget they're from opposite sides of town. Then a reporter appears, searching for a man known as Gentlehands, a man with a horrifying past. Who is Gentlehands? And what is his connection to Buddy's handsome, aristocratic grandfather? The mystery threatens to shatter Buddy and Skye's relationship, and change their lives forever.

Jeff Woodman skillfully blends Buddy's personal narrative with a wide range of unusual accents and characterizations. All the while, Buddy's own voice is maturing from its youthful earnestness to that of a harder, more circumspect young man. P.E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
