This is the story of a fishing camp in Maine that has a lasting effect on all the characters in the book. Whether it is the generations of the Crosby family who own the camp, or the generations of the Wainwright family who have been spending part of the summer there for 30 years, or the young man who is the lonely care taker; everyone feels connected to this simple place.
This was a story told by many voices and from many different perspectives. I found it very interesting and enjoyed all the points of view. If you have ever stayed at a camp and slept in rustic cabins you will feel right at home in this book.
