The mild-mannered Englishman, with his too-smart clothes and distracting eyes, has the potential to destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect, including not only the family business and the bay where her beloved whales can be found, but also her belief that she will never love, never deserve to love again.

Mike Dormer, for one, sees this as simply another business opportunity—an easy job launching a resort in a tiny coastal community ripe for growth.

However, he is perplexed by the quirky residents of the dilapidated Silver Bay Hotel, particularly the intriguing Liza McCullen, and their claim to the surrounding seas.

Mike and Liza’s worlds meet as the development takes on its own momentum in this profoundly emotional and fascinating story full of Jojo Moyes‘ characteristic humor and compassion.
