1964. The Hillsingers and the Quicks have shared the small Maine island of Seven for generations. But though technically family --- Jim Hillsinger and Billy Quick married Park Avenue sisters Lila and Hannah Blackwell --- they do not mix. Now, on the anniversary of Hannah's death, Lila feels grief pulling her toward Billy. And Jim, a spy recently ousted from the CIA on suspicion of treason, decides to carry out the threat his wife has explicitly forbidden: to banish their youngest son, the twelve-year-old Catta, to the neighboring island of Baffin for twenty-four hours in an attempt to make a man out of him.
