"Pure as the waters of the pre-industrial Chesapeake . . . utterly convincing and beautifully sensual. You feel the shell cuts, the pull of the nets." -- BALTIMORE SUN "Lenore Hart's story of love and betrayal yields as many surprises as the sea itself." -- SOUTHERN LIVING ". . . reads like a Greek tragedy crossed with Peyton Place . . . Hart reaches surprising emotional depths with her exploration of sibling rivalry, familial commitment, and social taboos." -- PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY "Annie's strength carries the novel, without resorting to cloying moments or tear-jerking cliches." -- WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL "A gripping story with an admirable, complex heroine . . . The love and rivalry between the sisters will strike a chord with teens." -- BOOKLIST "[Her] skill as a novelist lies in the respect she has for the form and for the words themselves . . . Like the watermen that people her novel, Hart has learned the tools of her craft." -- Salisbury NC POST "Annie tells her story in the hushed yet urgent voice of a sinner begging forgiveness . . . Hart throws in dramatic twists and turns that keep the reader voraciously turning the pages for more." -- LUCE World Wide Web Clips "A gripping story, colorful and sensuous and easy to read." -- Topeka CAPITAL-JOURNAL ". . . Hart creates a believable world where tragedy does not always equal hopelessness, a place where you don't always get what you want, but if you're strong, you find reasons to go on living anyway." -- Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL
