Summary
Game warden Elsie Buttrick has just given birth to Dick's illegitimate daughter, Rose, and over the next 16 years the fiercely independent Elsie grapples with motherhood, aging, and love, and throws herself into a crusade to stop her land-grabbing brother-in-law from expanding his seaside resort. Meanwhile, Dick's wife, May, reconciles a public humiliation with an intense love for Rose. As Elsie's lust flares, May sinks deeper into her devotion to her children and Rose
Summary
Ostracized at her new school for her illegitimacy, lower-income status and unfashionable figure, scholarship student Rose finds unexpected strength in her family ties to everyone in her Rhode Island fishing community
