Listing Detail Tabs

Hardcover book with dust cover in very good condition. Never read however a couple of small yellow spots from storage.

It is 1916 and Roberta Jewett, independent and free-thinking, has returned from Boston with her three young daughters, full of hope for a fresh start in the seaside town where she was born and raised. But in Camden, Maine, a woman divorced is a woman shunned - especially if she gets herself a job and drives a Model T Ford.

Condemned by her mother, harassed by her lecherous brother-in-law and scorned by the townsfolk, Roberta defies them all and perseveres in creating a happy, if unconventional household for her family. Only one man treats her with respect: widowed contractor Gabriel Farley, who begins work renovating her house. Although the chemistry between them is undeniable they fight it, Roberta embittered by her unhappy marriage and Gabriel still grieving over his late wife.

Then, ironically, a brutal act of violence forces them to acknowledge the powerful feelings that have grown between them. But as they fight for justice against the hypocrisy and cruel prejudice of a town determined to prove her wrong, Roberta realises that the worst ordeal is yet to come ...

A compassionate, compelling story of love, sacrifice and courage.
