Lily Harp returns from art school prematurely, pregnant and tossed between her well-meaning aunt, her protective grandfather, and her own uncertain sense of responsibility and independence. She is haunted by memories of her mother, whose suicide during Lily's girlhood first set Lily adrift. And she is drawn to another mother and daughter she meets at the water's edge and whose friendship presents Lily with a fateful choice between safety and hope. (The novella is followed by 12 short stories.)
