A touching novel of love and loss, a friendship that crosses generations, and learning how even the smallest gifts can change a life for good, from USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle. Amanda Whittier had no idea when she said goodbye to her husband, Jack, the morning he deployed that it would be the last time she'd ever see him. Two years later, she's still trying to put her life with their two children back together. She buys a tiny beach cottage in the town near where they'd wed, and what comes next is as unpredictable as what the tide brings in. An unlikely friendship with an older woman who has lived there her whole life puts a new lens on Amanda's situation, and Amanda begins finding shells with quotes in them that seem to guide and inspire her to face her fears. She uncovers local lore about these shells from as far back as thirty years ago that gives her purpose as she chases the stories behind them. One shell leads her to someone she hasn't spoken to since the day she laid her husband to rest. As their friendship unfolds, Amanda begins to believe that he just might hold the key to her future happiness.

Shells have a mystique that transcends time. Shelled molluscs have existed since the beginning of the Palaeozoic era, an amazing half billion years ago. For thousands of years humans have been fascinated by the beauty and significance of shells. From the dawn of human history, people have combed beaches for nature's jewels of the sea and land - either answering an irresistible urge to discover perfect, beautiful specimens, or in the more noble cause of science. This book reproduces in facsimile, John Mawe's first shell collecting guide of 1804, together with his complete edition of 1821, The Voyager's Companion, or Shell Collector's Pilot. The modern reader can now follow this intrepid author along the coasts of North Africa and South America, sharing the pleasures of handling beautiful and rare shells gathered from shores lapped by the waters of the South Seas, learning how and where to collect shells and how best to preserve them. Readers will discover that even unprepossessing shells are worth picking up, that the inhabitants of faraway places were often puzzled why anyone should want to collect such seemingly common objects.

The lifesize guide to identifying and classifying shells. Over 100,000 kinds of mollusk have been recorded and some estimates of yet to be discovered species exceed a million. They have colonized nearly every habitat on the planet, ranging from high mountains to the depths of ocean trenches, and from the poles to the tropics. They range in size from that of a grain of sand to a meter in length and many hundreds of kilograms in weight. The Book of Shells curates a lifesize collection of 600 of the most significant examples, presented by one of the world's preeminent scholars. Each shell is reproduced lifesize, and the book is arranged by shell family, and by size within each family, providing instant visual identification and comparison. Accompanying text for every example is divided into charted specifications, a general "biography," a summary of related species, and an extended caption that provides a detailed visual description. Magnified details reveal the diversity of pattern, while miniature line drawings reveal the variation in structure. The result is a collector's piece that is both a significant resource for enthusiasts and scholars, and the most visually stimulating guide to shells you could wish to find.
