ABOUT THE BOOK
In 1917, Beatrice Haven—the unwed teenage daughter of wealthy Jewish industrialists in Boston—sneaks out of her uncle’s house on Cape Ann in the middle of the night, abandons her newborn baby at the foot of a pear tree, and watches as another mother claims the baby as her own. Ten years later, Prohibition is in full swing and Bea has again sought refuge from her troubles at her uncle’s house, but she discovers far more than she bargained for when the rum-running manager of the local quarry inadvertently reunites her with Emma Murphy, the headstrong Irish Catholic woman who has been raising Bea’s abandoned child—now a bright, bold, cross-dressing girl named Lucy Pear, with secrets of her own. As spring turns into summer, Emma and Bea begin to build a strained, strange friendship, ultimately confronting decisions whose consequences will forever change their lives—and Lucy’s.
