On a June day in 1916, Louis C. Tiffany, the eccentric glass genius, dynamites the breakwater at his fantastical Oyster Bay mansion Laurelton Hall to foil the town’s reclamation of the beach for public use. The explosion shakes the apple crate where Prudence, daughter of Tiffany’s prized gardener, is sleeping and the rocks where Randall, her seven-year-old brother, is playing. Nearly a century later, Prudence receives an unexpected visit at her New York apartment from Grace, a hospice nurse and the granddaughter of Randall. The mementos Grace carries bring Prudence to a new understanding of the choices she made in work and love, and what she faces in her final days.
