Returning to Shore by Corinne Demas
This is a lovely story about 15 year old Clare. After her mother gets married for the third time, she sends Clare, who is pining for her stepfather, her mother's second husband, off to visit her father, whom she has not seen since she was too young to remember him. On an island with a virtual stranger, Clare discovers who her father is and what his secrets are. It takes some time, but they forge a relationship as they care for the terrapins that her father catalogues and tries to save even as nature and washashores thwart them. The story is a quick read, and I enjoyed it very much. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
