Genevieve lives with her mother and brother in a little harborside house, but ever since the day that her father's fishing boat was lost at sea, she has stayed well away from the shore. Instead, she gazes across the harbor at the castle on the other side and dreams of being a princess. One day, a tall man arrives sailing a little boat with red sails. Genevieve's mother introduces him as Cedric, her new friend. At first, Genevieve is apprehensive, but she sees the happiness Cedric brings to her mother, and slowly he becomes part of the family. So when Cedric suggests a family outing in his boat, will Genevieve be able to overcome her fear and visit the castle she has long dreamed of? Gorgeous, emotive watercolor paintings bring to life this touching story about loss, change, and confronting one's fears. Caroline Binch is best known for her Grace books, including" Amazing Grace," " Boundless Grace," and "Starring Grace.
