Cassie Callinan, dutiful corporate wife, collects what she can from life’s ashes left her by her betraying husband and flees with them to a seaside fishing village. Rather than escaping, however, she finds herself engaged by the eccentricities, peculiarities, loyalties, secrets, and love to be embraced within small-town life. Mary Louise-Walker’s soft tones and vocal hesitations perfectly dramatize the quiet desperation of a woman forced, at age 54, to take the surprising and, ultimately, inspiring and fulfilling journey of self-discovery she had spent her whole life fearing.
