Description
This haunting fifth novel from Michael Parker begins in 1813 with the disappearance at sea of Theodosia Burr, daughter of the disgraced Aaron Burr. Left for dead on a tiny North Carolina island after pirates attacked her ship, she is nursed back to health and sanity by a beach hermit and makes a new life for herself there. Here too is another story, 150 years later, of two elder sisters and their caretaker, the last residents of the island, who are told they will have to leave their home.

"I found The Watery Part of the World all but impossible to put down.... This elegantly written tale reflects on the nature of race, love, regret, dependence, fear, sorrow, honor and envy—the eternal challenges of being human. The characters, even the minor ones, are fully formed, the setting is so vividly described that you feel you know it intimately, and Parker's writing is purely wonderful."—Nancy Pearl
