David Greene was once the guy with the incredible pitching arm, but he never made it out of the minor leagues. Now, divorced with a son he's not allowed to see, David returns to his hometown, the small Cape Cod hamlet of Saltash, where he had been a local hero.
There he falls into a passionate affair with Judith Silver, the wife of a brilliant and powerful man. Into their explosive mix comes Crystal, a single mother at the end of her emotional rope. Caught between two women and two volatile triangles of desire and devotion, David bears witness to a heartbreaking tragedy that seems as inevitable as the push and pull of ocean waves.
