As Thea opens up to her for the first time, Colette finds herself softening and being drawn back into the landscape of her past. But can Belle-Île also be a part of her future? The ghosts of that past still linger. What happened all those years ago and how did it cause the rift between mother and daughter?

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK: A wind from the sea--cool, and salty, and delicious--came up to Bay View House, and stole in with the moonlight to the lace-draped windows of the parlor where a crumpled little figure crouched in a forlorn white heap on the wide, old-fashioned window sill, sobbing desperately through the plump little hands, in which the girlish face was hidden.The spacious parlor with its handsome, old-fashioned furniture, and open piano, was deserted, and the weeping of the girl echoed forlornly through the room, and blended strangely with the whispers of the wind, and the sounds of the sea.Old Faith put her grotesque, white-capped head inside the parlor door."Miss Irene, darling, won't you come and take your tea now?" said she, persuasively. "There's strawberry short-cake, and the reddest strawberries, and yellowest cream," added she, artfully appealing to the young lady's well-known epicurean tastes.A sharp little voice answered back from the window seat:"I won't take a thing, Faith; I mean to starve myself to death!""Oh, fie, my dearie, don't, now," cried Faith. "Come up-stairs, and let me tuck you in your little white bed, there's a love!""I won't, so there! Go away and leave me alone, Faith," cried the girl, through her stifled, hysterical sobs.Exit Faith.The wind stirred the yellow curls on the drooping head, and the moonlight touched them with fingers of light, bringing out their glints of gold. The great magnolia tree outside the window shook a gust of strong, sweet perfume from the large white waxen flowers, and the scent of June roses and lilacs came up from the old-fashioned garden. But the sweetness and beauty of the night seemed lost on little Irene, for her grieved sobs only burst forth afresh when Faith had departed. The girlish bosom heaved, the tears rained through her fingers, her smothered wail disturbed the harmony of the beautiful night.Another step came along the hall, a hand turned the door-knob and a handsome old man came into the room."Irene, my pet, my darling, where are you hiding? Come to papa," he called, glancing around the dimly-lighted room.With a scream of joy the little figure sprang down from its high perch in the window, and ran precipitately into his arms."Oh, papa, dear papa, you are home again!" she exclaimed, laughing and crying together, and patting his grey whiskers with her loving white hands."Yes, but you aren't glad to see me one bit. You're crying because I've come home. Shall I go back to the city, eh?" he inquired, softly pinching her cheek, and looking at her with kind, blue eyes full of love.Irene hid her lovely face on his broad breast and sobbed aloud.

In a community with strict standards and a long memory, Carolyn knows she might never find a man who will have her and her son, Benjamin.
