Simon Watson is a young librarian, who lives alone in his family home on the Long Island Sound. The house is slowly crumbling into the sea and Simon is on the verge of losing his job due to budget cuts.
His parents are dead; his mother drowned in the water overlooked by his house and his father essentially gave up on life due to grief. Simon raised his sister, Enola, until she took off to join a travelling carnival.
