Pretty and persuasive, Orlene convinces him to risk the crossing of Albemarle Sound, but emergencies and shoaling sandbars soon stand in the way. Landlocked by the spreading fog with Christmas fast approaching, Sawyer leans on small-town backdrops to charm his guest into staying, including a special offer Orlene can’t readily decline.
