New Hampshire, 1929 - when Sexton Breacher proposes to Honora Willard, she lays aside his flaws as one might overlook a small stain in a beautifully embroidered tablecloth. But as the couple begin their new life in the house at Fortune's Rocks, their love is about to be tested to the limit. For the Wall Street Crash has as little time for dreams as it does the mill workers at nearby Ely Falls, who are readying for strike whatever the consequences . . .
Writing from alternating points of views, Anita Shreve skillfully tells the stories of two seemingly divergent lives - equally moving, and each filled with their own stories of love, loss and finding stability in changing times. 'Sea Glass' is an amazing story of the human heart, of people sorting out their pasts, or people who are looking for one thing and finding another.
