Life on a small fishing island in the Chesapeake Bay sounds like a peaceful existence, but it isn't for Sara Louise Bradshaw. She has spent her entire young life in the shadow of her beautiful and talented twin, Caroline. Not only has her twin usurped their parents' affection, but she's even stealing away her best friend. Caroline gets to attend high school on the mainland while Sara has to settle for being home-tutored. Sara's fiercest wish is to have a life as carefree as her sister's, but the only future she envisions for herself is one of being trapped on the island. Katherine Paterson's intimate portrait of a young girl growing up in wartime ends in an unexpected and welcome epiphany. Christina Moore's narrative talent guarantees listeners a rich emotional experience as she interprets this sensitive look at the pangs involved in growing up to be independent and strong.
