Tells the story of sixteen-year-old Alice Daggett and the inhabitants of an island in Narragansett Bay during World War II.
It's 1941 on Snow Island, in New England, and adolescent Alice Dagget is spending the summer tending her family's store. The only excitement is the colorful influx of summer visitors, followed by the gloom of the off-season--until Pearl Harbor changes the world of the island, and that of Alice herself, who is forced to come of age by the events of an unexpectedly important period in her life.
