Summary The fish have mysteriously disappeared, and in the fishing village of Big Running most families had no choice but to relocate and find work elsewhere. Aidan and Martha Connor now spend alternate months of the year working at an energy site up north to support their children, Cora and Finn. Plagued by romantic temptations new and old, the emotional distance between Aidan and Martha only widens. Finn Connor develops an obsession with solving the mystery of the missing fish, and is aided by his reclusive music instructor Mrs. Callaghan. Cora spends her days decorating the abandoned houses but-- desperate for a bigger life beyond the small town-- takes matters into her own hands. -- adapted from jacket.
