Smith, Katy Simpson, 1985-2015
Books, Manuscripts
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. At night she sits with her father by the shore to hear stories of her mother, the pull of the ocean born into them both. John longs to sail the sea, as he did before the war, but knows he must stay on steady land for his daughter. But when she catches yellow fever John turns to what he knows, and steals her onto a boat bound for Bermuda, as Tab's life hangs in the balance.
