Are there really second chances? It is the 1970s and Mady Glazer is trying to hold herself and her three children together after the shocking death of her charismatic husband, David, in a plane crash. When they finally go on vacation to Racer's Cove at the eastern end of Long Island, they meet Hans Panneman, a bachelor and potter, who was brought up in Africa, whose father was an avid Nazi, and who escaped his earlier life by settling here and leading the quietest of lives. They could not be more different, more representative of "the other," as Mady is reminded by her extended Jewish family when she finds herself drawn to this quiet, puzzling man. Yet, love and ease sometimes come where we least expect them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Nearly a totally moving, rare reading experience . . ." -Publishers Weekly

"Gentle middle-age love story . . . is steadied by Silman's thoughtful attention to the slow evolution of love from a past of grief and alienation." -Kirkus Reviews

"A warm and gentle tale of the return of a widow to wholeness. A quiet unpressured story . . . of sane, attractive and intelligent people . . . a stream roaming in the woods . . ." -Nora Johnson,
The New York Times Book Review

"Roberta Silman is a graceful and patient writer, and she is able to make [Mady and Hans] agreeably unpredictable as they approach each other, back away, and approach again, unable to believe they have found a happy end to their unspeakable loneliness." -The New Yorker

"In her first novel Silman manages satire and faith, fire and calm with force and delicacy . . . A splendid talent . . . She shows some remarkable strengths, not the least of which is her attentive familiarity with the setting she's chosen. Tolstoy and Henry James would be writing about characters as sophisticated and engaged with life as her Mady and Hans if they were writing today." -The Boston Globe
