Body Surfing by Anita Shreve

In Body Surfing, twenty-nine-year old Sydney Sklar has already been divorced and widowed. She leaves her doctoral program and wanders aimlessly through life for a while, eventually taking a job as tutor to the 18-year old daughter of a wealthy family on the New Hampshire coast. It's an easy job that affords her time to think and swim in the ocean. When the two adult sons of the family arrive at the house, they both turn their attentions on Sydney, making her the pawn in their long-running rivalry. What might have been an idyllic summer threatens to unravel for Sydney. Anita Shreve's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the Deseret Morning News saying, "From the first page, Anita Shreve sets a perfect tone. Right away her latest book, Body Surfing, promises to be as good as her best."
