Charlotte is even more discouraged when she finds someone else in town has begun research for the same project. When that writer is found dead from a shotgun blast and the weapon is traced to Charlotte's young neighbor, the neglected and suddenly missing 12-year-old son of two vestigial hippies, Charlotte begins to worry as well. Continuing work on the book, Charlotte interviews Pelican Rock's established spinster set. Loosened tongues hint at dark secrets about a handsome, oft-wed doctor who mysteriously vanished nearly 60 years earlier.
