Safe Harbor - Audio CD - Abridged Author:Luanne Rice, Hope Davis (Narrator) Dana Underhill's artistic gift has led her all over the world in search of new ocean scapes. Her breathtaking underwater canvases evoke all the beauty and romance of the seas she and her beloved sister, Lily, have sailed since childhood. But when a shattering event takes Lily from her forever, Dana must leave her nomadic artist's life fo... more »r the salt marshes and tidal creeks of their childhood home at Hubbard's Point, Connecticut, to become a mother to Lily's two young daughters, Quinn and Allie.
Twelve-year-old Quinn may be Dana's toughest challenge because she clings fiercely to private mementos of her parents. Already an expert sailor, Quinn is convinced their deaths at sea were no accident. Dana is also troubled by the puzzle of what could have gone so terribly wrong on that clear, moonlit night.
Support comes to Dana with the unexpected reappearance of an old friend, marine biologist Sam Trevor who has been in love with Dana for years. Dana cannot contemplate opening her heart again, but she and Sam discover that Hubbard's Point is the center of endless mysteries, and that many of the answers lie in the blue-purple depths that surge through Dana's paintings. Haunting and powerful, Safe Harbor is an unforgettable story of family bonds, love lost and found, and of a painter's unfolding vision of herself, as an artist -- and as as woman.
Though a sad situation is the tread to the plot this story is one of rebuilding and rediscovering one's self. The relationships between the 2 girls and their aunt is touching and real. The love story isn't the main focus but flows through the story.
Much emotion is put into the reading on this audio. I lovely experience I recommend!!!
