Example text

A shovel would have expedited the process. Anna didn't know if Schlessinger was unprepared, a purist, or a fanatic. She suspected the latter two. On Cumberland Island just over a week and already Anna knew all about the marine biologist. To be more precise, she knew all the gossip. Tonight was the first time she'd actually laid eyes on the woman, though the first day she'd arrived the tarpaper shack Schles singer called home had been pointed out along with other island landmarks. The residents of Cumberland granted Marty Schlessinger the status usually reserved for witches and mad scientists.

Eccentricity made Schlessinger well suited to Cumberland Island National Seashore. Once a vacation home for the very rich, Cumberland had been privately owned until the 1970s. In the past fifty years most of the flashier millionaires had moved to more fashionable addresses, leaving only a handful of moneyed and powerful families behind, but the ghost of those glory days remained in the crumbling mansions and burned-out relics. In the early 1970s, eighteen thousand acres of the twentythousand acre island was deeded over to the federal government to be preserved as a national park.

The screened-in porch was aglow from lights spilling out the open door. Behind the wiquitous row of boots, banned from the interior by Guy in an attempt to slow the migration of the dunes from outside to in, Anna could see people lounging in metal folding chairs. The spark of a cigarette butt traced a slow are to someone's mouth. Lynette Wagner, Cumberland's GS-4 interpretive ranger, stood in the doorway, yellow light turning the brown frizz of a shoulderlength perm to red. Her laughter bobbed on top of the hum of conversation.
