As they wait for the arrival of a new baby, Maita tells her great-grandniece the story of her remarkable childhood. Together they have developed a book of classic beauty and resonance. And then 1 icy night, howling winds blew wave instantly after wave against the shore, and from that fearsome storm came a sea chest-a gift that would change Maita's life forever. From a beguiling Maine legend, newcomer Toni Buzzeo has fashioned this exquisitely lyrical, intimate tale, illustrated in vibrant oil paintings by Mary Grand Pre. Living sheltered on a lighthouse island with only her parents for company, Maita always longed for a sibling-longed not to turn into the only youngster the ragged island knew.
