A family saga in historical fiction delivered in waves from the bay as Doris Marie Linney longs to know her paternal heritage. An orphan depending on the kindness of her maternal uncles' families, Doris depends on stories and eavesdropping to frame a memory of the father she never knew. She wants to know him as a kind, honorable man, but the mutterings of her uncles plant doubts, and serendipitous encounters with strangers confuse her. There is a secret being kept she intends to discover, but she is patient. Does she really want to know? The history of the settlement of the Lamar Peninsula on the coast of Texas is part of Doris's mother's legacy. The Johnson family is entrenched in the community and the politics in several counties. They have been dedicated to community since before the Civil War. And then there are the Spanish Curebellos, a history Doris knows nothing about until she is a grandmother, but it is just as important to the settlement of Texas as the Danish Johnsons. Doris tends to blame her uncles' opinions on the dark skin of her father's relatives, but is that the reason for their whispered curses? Only a few people know, but will they have the courage to voice their knowledge to Justin Linney's only surviving daughter? In a tale of family bonds and secrets, two women struggle to live in the truth and in doing so, one gives up her dreams and the other embraces them.
