Publisher's Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Engrossing...entertaining...the perfect book to take to the beach." (Boston Herald)

Two families, both carried by the Mayflower across stormy seas... both destined to generations of proud leadership, shameful intrigue, and passion for the sandy crest of land that became their heritage...

This is the story of the Bigelow and Hilyard clans, from their first years on America’s shores, through the fury of her wars and the glory of her triumphs, to our own time when young Geoff Hilyard must fight to save both his marriage to a Bigelow heir and the windswept coast he loves. It is a struggle that will take him deep into the past, to a centuries-old feud that never died...and on a dangerous quest for a priceless relic of American history that has lain hidden in the Cape for over two hundred years.

Page-turning historical fiction

I could not think of the audible equivalent of “page turning,” but a good listen, even at twenty-five hours.

Remarkably sympathetic to the Wampanoag nation (the original inhabitants of Cape Cod) for something written thirty years ago.

Captures the feeling of a time and place with a mystery/history to carry you through (then) 370 years (or a thousand).

Great historical novel ruined by a lazy narrator

This is a terrific historical novel read by a narrator who mispronounces just about every location or local terminology. Read this book on paper, you’ll get frustrated with the narrator’s incredible sloppiness!
