Why We Love It!


Bill Bushnell, Book Reviewer

The Havener Sisters

"The Havener Sisters is one of the warmest, most uplifting books of the past year. Hamlin is a masterful storyteller, creating a wonderful, wholesome story of good people, good manners and good deeds."

Genevieve Morgan, Editor

Blue Summer

"Jim braids a complicated and haunting story in Blue Summer. Like a song that gets stuck in your head, these characters land and won’t let go.”

Dean Lunt, Editor

The Weir

"Although from a different era, Ruth Moore grew up on an island not far from the one I grew up on. Her heritage gives her remarkable insight into the everyday character and the very souls of coastal residents. She seeks the truth and she writes it."
