Violet Iverson and her young daughter, Ella, are piecing their lives together one year after the disappearance of her husband. As rumors swirl and questions about his loyalties surface, Violet believes Ella knows something. But Ella is stubbornly silent. Something - or someone - has scared her. And with the island overrun by troops training for a secret mission, tension and suspicion between neighbors is rising.
Violet bands together with her close friends to get through the difficult days. To support themselves, they open a pie stand near the military base, offering the soldiers a little homemade comfort. Try as she might, Violet can't ignore her attraction to the brash marine who comes to her aid when the women are accused of spying. Desperate to discover the truth behind what happened to her husband while keeping her friends and daughter safe, Violet is torn by guilt, fear, and longing as she faces losing everything. Again.

I liked how the story unravels. Ackerman skillfully starts at the idyllic surface and plucks the blossoms off the tropical flowers. By the end we're in the know, about the neighbors, women power, sweet Elena, Herman. I enjoyed it.
