Read full description of the books:
A captivating debut, introducing a spirited young heroine coming of age in coastal Maine during the early 1960s.
When her mother disappears during a weekend trip, Florine Gilham's idyllic childhood is turned upside down. Until then she'd been blissfully insulated by the rhythms of family life in small town Maine: watching from the granite cliffs above the sea for her father's lobster boat to come into port, making bread with her grandmother, and infiltrating the summer tourist camps with her friends. But with her mother gone, the heart falls out of Florine's life and she and her father are isolated as they struggle to manage their loss.
Both sustained and challenged by the advice and expectations of her family and neighbors, Florine grows up with her spirit intact. And when her father's past comes to call, she must accept that life won't ever be the same while keeping her mother vivid in her memories. With Fannie Flagg's humor and Elizabeth Stroud's sense of place, this debut is an extraordinary snapshot of a bygone America through the eyes of an inspiring girl blazing her own path to womanhood.

Read information about the authorFor marketing purposes, one of my publicists asked me to think about why I stand out. That's a hard question to answer during fractured times filled with bombastic narcissists shouting LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! It's almost better to NOT stand out. So maybe the question is, what is anti-special about me? You're only cool when you don't worry about being cool. It's a Catch-22.
I've had my moments. I rode a three-speed bicycle across England during a very rainy summer. When I read Wild by Cheryl Strayed, I related to her excitement (high) versus preparedness ratio (low). I was an actress for twenty years, appearing in everything from Skin or Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder to Under Milkwood by Dylan Thomas. I have an awesome voice, discovered when I was about forty. I've held a number of jobs, from service-type positions to professional stints as a journalist and editor. I've traveled back and forth across country a number of times between South Dakota and Maine. Anything you want to ask about Routes 80/90? I have the answer.
I've spent a lot of time in my head, living in worlds parallel to this one. So, what DOES makes me special? My imagination, which I almost forsook for health insurance and mortgage payments. These things are both necessary, but neither is fodder for the soul. My imagination rescued me by speaking loud and clear to me on an ordinary afternoon several years ago. The small but intense voice in my head whispered, "Excuse me. I have something to say. You can use this gift and live as you were meant to live, or you can merely exist in a place where you've never quite fit." So, I began to honor those characters in my head. I listened to what they had to say and I brought them into being.
What makes me special? I was given the gift of creating worlds, and I am honoring the privilege of doing that. I am a lucky woman.
