Fortune's Rocks is a 1999 romance novel by bestselling author Anita Shreve. It is chronologically the first novel in Shreve's tetralogy to be set in a large beach house on the New Hampshire coast that used to be a convent. It is followed by Sea Glass, The Pilot's Wife and Body Surfing.

Plot introduction

In the summer of 1899, Olympia Biddeford, a privileged, intelligent and confident 15-year-old who is vacationing with her family at Fortune's Rocks, falls in love with a married 41-year-old doctor and journalist, John Haskell. Their passionate affair, and subsequent discovery, produces a son and leads to far-reaching consequences that span several decades.

The novel is loosely based on the seaside neighborhood of Fortunes Rocks, located in Biddeford, Maine.
