The life of an islander is practically written in stone. Methodist, women disliking the water, men making their living off of it, children obeying their parents, families looking after the others. Sara Louise Bradshaw and her twin sister Caroline are born just like other island children... Caroline has a musical talent unsurpassed by any other, while Sara Louise spends her days going crabbing with her friend Call and aching to get out of her sister's long-reaching shadow of excellence. Watching as her sister takes her friends, parents love, and dreams for the future, Sara at last has to make her own decisions for the future. 263 pages, softcover.
