This book was given to me by my Mother-in-law and I throughly enjoyed it. The plot is a wonderful drama set on a tiny island off the coast of France. The daughter comes home to try to work out her relationship with her silent boatbuilder father. The other parallel stories of the tension between the Houssins at the South end of the island (with the tourist attracting beach) and the poor fishing villages of the Salannais to the North. Add in a love interest and a well written plot and this is a good drama. 4 stars.

One of the few books where I didn't figure out the plot twist until it was explained.
