When Rebecca Granger falls in love with Ben Bunker she is only fourteen. In 1958 a summer girl from away is not allowed to love a year-round boy, son of a fisherman in Downeast Maine, and yet she does. When her father dies, loss and anger overpower her and she commits a sin, terrible as the time, that almost destroys her. She hides from her life in fantasies until she returns to Maine as an adult, and struggles to come to terms with the past.
Islands of Time is a moving story of loss, pain and growth, but ultimately of unexpected forgiveness and love.
