Inspired by postcards found in a 150-year-old house in Coley's Point. Triffie and Kit are closer than sisters. But for two girls growing up in a tiny newfoundland out-port at the dawn of the 20th century, having the same dreams and ambitions doesn't mean life will hand you the same opportunities. A teacher's certificate offers Kit the chance to explore the wider world, while triffie is left behind. The letters she and Kit exchange are her lifeline - until a long-buried secret threatens to destroy their friendship.
