Summary: When seventeen-year-old Lucy’s father, a minister, gets a prestigious summer position in Bar Harbor, Maine, her mother determines to find a rich husband for her daughter but Lucy is fascinated by the sea and a handsome ship-builder.
I agree, It seemed almost like half the book was forgotten. I liked the book, but i was a little dissapointed. i was excpecting it to be completely one of the best books ever, because Kathryn Lasky is my favorite author.
I really loved this book, until the end. The characters were interesting and complex.The writing was distingushed. I don’t think this book should be considered for the award because it had a major cliffhanger.
