This is a story about new love, and how a misplaced and ill-timed sense of duty almost ruins it. Narrated by independent, introspective Rebecca, the story appears at first to be headed into a typical tale of romance, but soon turns into something much less steamy-- and far more engaging. For readers with a working imagination, it can vividly suggest what real people in love go through when consummation of their love is threatened not by a rival but by their own soul-mate's "better self." For all four people heading together from Maine to Haiti on The Wake (a yacht), it it is also a story of self-discovery and awakening.
