Hardworking, reliable Louise's envy of her pretty, admired sister Caroline grows uncontrolled under the jeers of her grandmother who likens Louise to the Biblical Esau, jealous of his twin Jacob. "It is simply irrestistible, not only because of the author's skillfully realized cast of characters but because of enthralling descriptions of crab hunting and ways of life on . . . Chesapeake Bay." ...Publisher Weekly

I was proud of my sister, but that year, something began to rankle beneath the pride.
Louise has had enough of her twin sister. Caroline is beautiful. Caroline is talented. Caroline is better. Growing up on the small island of Rass in Chesapeake Bay, Caroline seems to do nothing but take from Louise: their parents' love, Louise's chances for an education, her dreams for the future. They have spent their lives entwined -- sleeping in the same room, eating at the same table, learning in the same classroom -- and yet somehow nothing can bring them together. Louise's only hope lies in seeking a place for herself beyond the stretch of Rass's shores and her sister's shadow. What will it take for her to break free?About the Author:
