On a small stretch of untamed coast, five old clapboard houses gaze out to sea. Fourteen-year-old May Duhane, arriving with her father and sister for the summer, feels isolated and resentful. Leonie Beam, staying in the neighbouring house with her husband's family, shares May's isolation for she is unhappy in her marriage. She confides in Elizabeth Newton, an aging widow who keeps the beach's secrets. Meanwhile, May has discovered the diary of a dead girl, her own age. To unravel its story, she must immerse herself in the past. As she does so, she begins to feel she is destined to follow in the dead girl's footsteps.

About the Author:

Rosie Thomas writes for magazines and newspapers as well as her fiction. When not writing she spends her time travelling and mountaineering. In 1997 she competed in the Peking to Paris Motor Rally, and she has climbed Mont Blanc as well as travelling to Everest and the Antarctic.

From AudioFile:

A summer in Maine for a widower and his two teenaged daughters brings varied reactions from the residents of the local beach town. May, the younger daughter, stumbles across a diary that becomes the central concern of the novel. Bonnie Hurren carries the story faultlessly. Her caring and intimate reading gives sympathy to every character. Hurren's personal energy makes this worthwhile entertainment. J.P. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
