This book focuses on two women, separated by twenty-six miles of ocean, whose lives are passing through distinct crises.
Elizabeth Rivers, 17, gradually falls in love with her English teacher, must at summer's close, sever herself from her lover, family, and home on Catalina island to begin the next passage of her life.
On the California mainland, at the same point in time, Marci Tyson, 29, and pregnant, buys her own house, leaves her husband, and has a child.
Ten years later, in a bar called The Daily Planet, two women meet and eventually fall in love, discover that their individual striving has always been a part of the same cyclic and mythic movement of time.
