Do you have to lose everything to see what truly matters? Find out in the seventh and final installment of Cynthia Voigt’s Tillerman cycle.
Dicey Tillerman has big dreams. She’s started a boatbuilding business, and she’s determined to prove she can succeed on her own. That’s why she resists the offer of help from Cisco, the mysterious stranger who turns up one day at her shop.
But running a business doesn’t leave much time for the people Dicey treasures—her grandmother, her younger siblings, and her boyfriend, Jeff. Then it turns out that Dicey has placed her trust with the wrong person. Suddenly she stands to lose everything....Has Dicey discovered too late what really matters to her?
Cynthia Voigt deftly navigates nuances of identity and resilience in this triumphant conclusion to her acclaimed Tillerman cycle.

THE KIRKUS REVIEWS
There's only one thing Dicey Tillerman wants to do--and that's build boats. If she can make a success of doing what she loves, she can take care of the rest of the Tillerman clan, which includes her two younger brothers, her younger sister, and Gram, who took them all in when their mother abandoned them. But dreaming isn't doing, and Dicey begins to find out the hard way that starting a business is difficult, and that you have to expect the unexpected....
