She remembers how her father would say that dolphins were a sign of good luck. But now the dolphins are gone. And happiness seems to have died with Mollys father. In the aftermath of his sudden death, Molly and her mother struggle to make sense of how and why he died. The loving bond between mother and daughter seems irreparably broken as Molly holds her mother responsible for her fathers death. At the same time, Molly is weighed down by her own feelings of grief--and guilt. Now Molly and her mother must make a new life. But a new life means selling Emerald Eyes, the boat Mollys father loved. Molly is determined to do whatever it takes to keep her fathers boat--including stealing it. In this moving novel, Carole Crowe explores the conflicted emotions that one girl feels in the wake of her fathers death, and the long interior journey she must make before she finds peace with herself and understanding with her mother.
