Robin and Ann Garrity are proud owners of the Viroqua, a fictional
bed and breakfast inn on the shores of the Atlantic. While Ann struggles to
maintain the establishment, Robin acts more like a guest than an owner...a
fact which drives Ann first into the arms of neighbor, carpenter and highly
competent handyman Charlie Thibodeau, then clear across the country to San
Diego, in an effort to escape both Rob and Charlie while starting the
process of finding herself again...We see the world of Robin turned upside
down, but nevertheless pulsating, like the ocean tides just beyond his doorstep.
