Relive the magic of childhood in Ethel Lee-Miller's stories of summers spent at her grandfather's home in Miller Place, a town on the northeastern end of Long Island. Away from mysterious adult worries, Ethel and her identical twin enjoy carefree days diving in the waters of the Long Island Sound and nights chasing fireflies.

Coupled with their adventures are the wondrous people the twins come into contact with: the sophisticated and graceful French woman who greets them at the beach with a warm smile, the fearless neighbor boy who initiates them into his tribe, and their loving father who takes time away from his busy work schedule to construct and fly kites with them.

With her "Finn" always by her side, Ethel savors childhood innocence while coming of age and forming secure, lasting ideals about love, beauty, home, and family. Even today, Ethel has only to think of Miller Place to claim a sense of comfort, serenity, and belonging.
