The story of a young woman coming of age in the tumultuous Watergate years.

When Anna Berman leaves her boyfriend Sal and heads for the family cottage on an island off Cape Cod, she expects solitude and time to think. What she does not expect are uninvited house guests -- first Sal, then her teenage niece and a strange friend, and finally her father's girlfriend. Anna is drawn into a tumult of precarious relationships, both present and past, and is challenged by ambivalent feelings and shifting allegiances.

Cynthia Holz was born in the Bronx in 1950. She completed her education at Queens College of the City University of New York where she graduated in English in 1971. She has worked as a journalist and a teacher and presently resides in Toronto.
