Publisher's Summary

Escaping an unhappy marriage and an unsatisfactory job, Cassie Holloway moves to the little NSW coastal town of Whitby Point. Here she meets the Aquino family, whose fishing business was founded by their ancestor, Giuseppe, an immigrant Italian, some ninety years before. Life for Cassie on the south west coast is sweet as she sets up a successful restaurant and falls in love with Giuseppe's great grandson Michael. But when the family patriarch dies, a devastating family secret is revealed which threatens to destroy her dreams. Cassie's future happiness now rests with her quest for the truth.

I really loved this story, although a little over descriptive at times. The Narrator is too sickly sweet for my liking.

Struggled through the book - partly narration partly story. The voice of Cassy so irritating. The 'interesting' (read irritating) tidbits around fishing and basically everything else was not making the story more interesting but rather patronising. Not worth a credit.
