In Return to the Sea, a young girl and her family set off on a summer road trip from Ontario to the Maritimes. On their way to their grandparents' cottage in New Brunswick they visit many of the most famous tourist attractions east of Ontario: historic Quebec City; the world's longest covered bridge in Hartland, New Brunswick; the legendary tides of the Bay of Fundy; Peggy's Cove; the city of Halifax; and Anne's Prince Edward Island. Everything from the car ride, to pirate stories, bonfires, and bike rides, is cherishingly documented by a young girl.

Following in the footsteps of East to the Sea, Heidi Jardine Stoddart's Return to the Sea is another enchanting story that captures the wonder and curiosity of a child. Stoddart's storybook rhyming verse is accompanied by her detailed illustrations making this a perfect tale for all children. In particular, this book makes a wonderful souvenir for boys and girls who have visited the east coast: like the characters in the book, they can remember and recount their magical trip.
