Sometimes it takes a little searching to find "the one." On an East Coast island, full of tall pine moaning with sea gusts, Delilah moves into a cottage by the shore. The neighbors gossip as they watch her cleaning, black hair tied back in a white rubber band. They don’t like it when she plants a garden out front—orange-red Carpinus caroliniana and silvery-blue hosta. Very unusual, they whisper. Across the driveway lives a man who never goes out. Delilah knows he’s watching her too and she likes the look of him, but perhaps life is too complicated already.


"This deft, devourable novella is one part Barbara Pym, one part Patricia Highsmith, and all parts Sara Marchant."  —Jill Alexander Essbaum, author, Hausfrau

"This story unfolds beautifully, with a balance of mystery and wry insight that keeps you turning the pages."  —Mary Yukari Waters, author, The Laws of Evening

"Sara Marchant is the kind of writer we need for these times: her scathing intelligence, refusal to engage with sentimentality, and generous, inclusive view of what makes people's lives matter restores my belief in the power of story to change the world."  —Emily Rapp, author, The Still Point of the Turning World

"With radiant humanity, humour, and spiky powers of observation, Sara Marchant illuminates the wild and enigmatic nature of attraction."  —Mary Otis, author, Yes, Yes, Cherries
