This story starts off in 1837. It's about Laura, Rye & Dan who were childhood friends & grew closer into adulthood. Laura & Rye had a magical connection, married and soon after he left on a whaling ship to try & earn their fortune. However, fate stepped in, his ship went down, and as everyone assumed, with him on it. 5 years later, with a son Rye never knew, married to his best friend Dan who saw her through the toughest times in her life, Rye returns and walks into a house that was once his & a woman he thought was still his wife. Not to mention the son he didn't know existed, but who's now calling another man papa. Rye's returned, but lost everything, including his house & it's belongings as he finds out that legally Laura's married to Dan. But with a love so very strong, Laura & Rye begin a journey, not knowing where it will leave all 4 of them & no one wanting to hurt the other.
I enjoyed this book for so many reasons, interesting & likable characters, memorable love story, great friendships and humor. It was also interesting to read about what it was like to live in Nantucket in the 1800's with the whaling industry & all of the other sorts of things like horse & carriage rides, making homemade candles & wearing those hideous corsets.
If you are looking for a love story, I'll guarentee you this one will not let you down!
