An Affair...An Island...And A Mystery!!!

I am in the middle of this book and it already has lots of best bits.  The story is about
Nora and Malcolm who met in law school and have been together raising two young daughters until Malcolm was unfaithful and the entire world found out about it.
Thus we have...
A cheating husband who just happens to be a political figure.
A return to an island in Maine to escape press and prying eyes.
Seals and dolphins.
One of those great aunts who is wise and has needed answers.
Beachy white washed cottages.
Rhubarb muffins and good strong coffee.
A cove near the cottage that is just meant for swimming.
Troubled daughters.
A mystery surrounding Nora's mother's death.
 A mysterious sailor who appears on the beach after a storm...out of nowhere.
Sea glass everywhere...
polished and worn in shades of white and blue and green.
Tons of beach to explore.
Italian honey bees...to make the honey to put on the rhubarb muffins.
It's a lovely lovely book.
