Anna Bouverie has long served as a priest`s wife, committed to his work and their family. But the endless rounds of community service and servility have worn away at her until she can barely feel or recognise herself.
Torn between her freedom and blind responsibility, and with the interest of more than one man to drive her on, Anna faces a crisis in faith in her marriage and what it means to be The Rector`s Wife.
At the end of a long and useful life, Penelope Keeling`s prized possession is The Shell Seekers, painted by her father, and symbolizing her unconventional life, from bohemian childhood to wartime romance. When her grown children learn their grandfather`s work is now worth a fortune, each has an idea as to what Penelope should do. But as she recalls the passions, tragedies, and secrets of her life, she knows there is only one answer...and it lies in her heart.
