Mariella Bennet and her father shared a deep love of the sea, but her dream of one day running a charter boat business floundered when he was found dead. Robuck's second novel (after Receive Me Falling, 2009), set in Depression-era Key West, follows Mariella as she lives by her wits to support her family. One evening, in hopes of augmenting her paltry earnings, she dresses in her father's old clothes and places a risky bet on the underdog in a boxing match, WWI veteran Gavin Murray, who is working nearby on the Overseas Highway. She loses the bet but captures his attention as well as that of Ernest Hemingway, Key West's most notorious resident. All their lives are intertwined from that night forward. They have more in common than she knows. Hired as a maid in the hot-blooded Hemingway household, Mariella learns to navigate the complicated allure of his interest while maintaining her own fierce heart. She weathers many storms with feisty strength and a memorable clarity, coming to recognize the many faces of true love. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
