    A lyrical and spellbinding story of love, loss, and war from a standout new voice in fiction. Katy Simpson Smith has already been acclaimed as an "heir apparent to to Michael Ondaatje and Marilynne Robinson." August 1793. On the hot, humid coast of North Carolina, nine-year-old Tabitha fills her pockets with fish bones and shells, to bring the ocean back to her room. The act, perhaps, of a child conceived at sea.
