She was at her wits end, and feeling hopeless. Paula Crude needed a change of scenery. Living in up-state New York had grown tiresome.
A string of bad boyfriends followed by an abusive ex-husband, she was about ready to give up.

Paula spent three summers with her Grandparents at their house on Maple Island. It was so beautiful and peaceful there, Paula was heartbroken every time she left.
