Sensitive but practical, Charlotte Tradescome has come to accept the reticence of her older, work-obsessed husband Henry. Still, she hopes to create a life for their three-year-old daughter. So when Henry inherits a home on Cape Cod, she, Henry, and little Fiona move from their Manhattan apartment to this seaside community. Charlotte sells off part of Tradescome Point, inadvertently fueling the conflict between newcomers and locals. Many townspeople easily dismiss Charlotte as a "washashore." A rare exception is Darryl Stead, an oyster farmer with modest dreams and an open heart, with whom Charlotte feels the connection she's been missing. Ultimately he transforms the way she sees herself, the town, and the people she loves...… (mais)

Would not recommend. ( )

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. ( )

i thought this book was hard to get into and i didn't care that much about the characters, but i do love stories located anywhere beachy so that was enough to keep me interested enough to finish it.

If you've ever been to Wellfleet, or outer Cape Cod, you'll realize Schmidt has captured the feeling of being there entirely, in it's glory and desolation. Charlotte, the main character and wonderfully written outsider, moves with her family to the Cape, determined to connect her solely cerebral husband to something from his past and elicit emotion from him if it kills her. She finds love in ways she didn't expect and couldn't pursue- the oysterman Darryl. Schmidt walks the line of love and obligation, family, class, and New England mentality with skill and grace. Lovely novel. ( )

The characters are pure New England: hardy, stubborn, complicated family histories from generation to generation...
