This book was purchased based on a recommendation from Amazon. Mrs. Schmidt has written a book from the heart and soul; her words paint a true picture of a Cape Cod town. This is a tale of the old vs. the new. Unless you have lived the life of the ancestors of our forefathers who have remained in the safehaven of the small town, you will be unable for feel all the emotions Schmidt has created for her characters.

Many small New England towns where ocean or lakes are their major source of income is dependent on their year round local citizens to be innovative during the off season. New Englanders are strong believers of the strength of the community. In the book, an elderly woman tells the protagnist Charlotte (a washashore)the story how she came to Wellfleet. She was an infant when she was placed on the steps of a church where the minister took her into his family and the entire village aid in her upbringing thus her name Ada Town.

One may find the story of the big bad rich out-of-towner, who attempts to take away the livehood of a number of the locals, to be contrived. This part is a sub plot of a love story of marriage, children, the land and a love that can never be. You can take this book to the beach but not as an easy read but to romance the surrounding of the sandy shore.

This was another sappy read, though well-written, the author just did not make me care about the characters. I think I just can not read any more books about unhappy married women. I don't feel sorry for them and their really is no plot line that will draw me in. I mostly wanted to read this because of the local and that part was nicely done, but if you aren't invested in the characters, then their really is no point.
