The story concerns a married couple from Palo Alto, CA who decide to spend a year in OR so that the husband, a professor at Stanford can write his magnum opus on the history of lighthouses, before they return to CA where his wife plans to open an art gallery with a friend. Unfortunately, the economic situation in the town is very bleak and the fishing industry has just about fallen to nothing, so the couple encounter a lot of hostility from the people who live there. (This used to be a rather common attitude that some Oregonians held for people from CA although I have not encountered it in many years). Needless to say, the couple's plans all go awry, and there are some career criminals on the loose who complicate everyone's lives.
