In this compelling novel set against the beautiful backdrop of Ogunquit, Maine, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin portrays an unexpected friendship, and its consequences for two very different women as time inevitably sweeps them into adulthood. . .
Over the course of one eventful summer, nine-year-old native Mainer Delphine Crandall and Maggie Weldon, a privileged girl "from away," become best friends. Despite the social gulf between them, their bond is strengthened during vacations, and lasts throughout their college years in Boston. Yet after graduation, Delphine and Maggie slowly drift in different directions. . .
With her MBA, Maggie acquires a lucrative career, and eventually marries. Delphine is drawn back to Maine, her life steeped in family and community. Twenty years pass, until one summer, Maggie returns to Ogunquit to pay an extended visit. And for the first time, the friends reflect on the girls they were and the women they've become, the promises kept and broken--and the deep, lasting ties that even time can never quite wash away. . .
