Set against the romantic background of a New England river, a teenage boy confronts his fear of water and the ghost of his drowned father. As Eliot gears up for spring rowing season, he struggles to define who he is. Life is an empty shell. Who can help? Becoming a man is more than athletic exploits and bravado. He looks to Honor, his rowing partner, and to his bereaved mother for guidance. In his sleek rowing shell, can he find ways to fill this void and move forward?
