About the Book

The rumor was that some boys had climbed up into the church tower and cut the rope to the bell. If true, the Father wasted no time in quickly installing an expensive system of electronic music that outshouted the lovely sounds of waves and muted the cries of the sandpipers and plovers. Leah. a young divorced mother and her seven-year-old son, Tommy, are spending the summer in her father’s cottage close to the church. The loud music irks her to the point of attempting to gather signatures in protest. The results are menacing . . . so frightening that Leah sends her son home to his grandfather where he will be safe. During her attempt to gather signatures from cottagers, Leah meets Peter. Immediately, she feels an unwanted sexual tug in his presence and a nervous need to be careful.
