Salt Water: A Novel by Charles Simmons

In the summer of 1963 I fell in love and my father drowned.... So begins this sweet, ominous new novel by Charles Simmons. Set against an idyllic landscape of water, sand, and sky, it recounts in exquisite detail the momentous events of a boys 16th summer that reveal to him the dark facts of adult passion. On Bone Point, an island off the New England coast, the boys long, lazy days of boating and swimming are sharpened by a growing awareness of his charismatic fathers infidelities. Add to this the presence of a flirtatious middle-aged woman and her beautiful 20-year-old daughter, who have rented the guesthouse, and the tale is set in motion. This tautly constructed novel is both startling and haunting-an irresistible story of memory, desire, and suspense.
