The novel is filled with wonderful details of the natural world, both at sea and on land. It also captures the pervasive changes wrought by the Industrial Revolution as coastal people stood on the brink of a new world, slowly turning from the glorious era of sail to serving the incoming tide of wealthy summer vacationers.
