Stonington Harbor, Maine, is so far east it's almost an island, and so desolate that the inhabitants must find someting stronger than themselves to make them stay. In the summer, the tourists come to the pond to see the early-morning lilies in bloom. But in the winter, the pond belongs to the locals--especially Elizabeth's mother, whose skating is her genius, and the fishermen's sons, who play hockey there. It is at the pond that the accident happens--an accident that will change them all. Dreams will dissipate; attachments will break apart; family memories will be cast in shadows. In the end it will be abandonment that Elizabeth must endure. Loss of a tormented father, loss of a loving mother, and eventually the loss of a worldly and unforgettable lover.
