ON HARBOR’S EDGE (June 2020)
Book One: 1912 – 1913
When an unsuspecting bride gets into a boat one stormy June day in 1912, Thaddeus takes her far out to sea to the end of Popplestone Isle. There villagers welcome Mildred with hopeful joy, but she discovers the tiny fishing community is headed for a most painful end. In her efforts to save their treasured harbor home, Mildred must risk losing everything she holds dear.
On Harbor’s Edge is the first story in a series with dramatic, generationally layered plots from 1912 to the present, against the backdrop of Maine coast imagery award-winning author Susan Conley describes as “so rich it is its own character.” While the Popplestone Isle tale is fictional, some of the hurdles Mildred May Gale and her neighbors face over a hundred years ago still challenge islanders today.
Captivating! On Harbor’s Edge hooked me line and sinker with fascinating characters and dramatic plots brilliantly layered in Maine island life a hundred years ago. Can’t wait for the sequel! – Linda Greenlaw
