Book Description

6 Mar 2003 Chesapeake Bay (Book 2)

Ethan Quinn shared his late father's passion for the ocean, and he is determined to make the family boat-building business a success. But he is also facing the most important challenges of his life...

There is his younger brother Seth, who needs him more than ever. And there is Grace, the woman he has always loved but never believed he could have. Beneath Ethan's seemingly still waters lies a dark and painful past. He must learn to see beyond the shadows and accept who he is. Because through Ethan's past lies the future- and his one chance at happiness...

Other books in this series are SEA SWEPT and INNER HARBOUR. And find out what happens to the nowe grown-up Seth in CHESAPEAKE BLUE.

5.0 out of 5 stars great family story 4 Sep 2011
By Mrs. A. Wright VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second in the series about the Quinn family. It follows on from Sea Swept. It is the story of Ethan the quiet thinker of the family who stayed home and worked the sea. Ethan's dream of a boat building business helps the family overcome the problems that would prevent the three young men having legal guardianship of Seth. Ethan has had many similar problems to
Seth and his early childhood still influences his life. Can he use this to help Seth? Characters are lovely and the plot, a continuation of Sea Swept, is a warm and funny one. Well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story as long as you read the first book. 23 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Roberts furthers the mystery surrounding the death of the Quinn patriarch and the origins of the young boy he was trying to adopt. I am not sure the book would work as well for anyone who had not read Sea Swept. She has left a lot of items that will need to be tied up in the final book. Seth grows as a character and while Ethan and Grace's love story was foreshadowed in the first book of the trilogy, Ms. Roberts still manages to throw in a few suprises. Ms. Roberts does an excellent job of presenting the male viewpoint in these books and I am looking forward to the next book in the story.
