This anthology celebrates Mount Desert Island in its golden age, the late 19th century, when it was a summer playground for wealthy out-of-staters, and most importantly to many, a place for the rich to meet their future husbands and wives. This special era in Maine history spawned a new genre of fiction that was known as “The Bar Harbor Novel,” romance stories about the rich falling in and out of love during their summer sojourns. Dramatic and romantic, these short novels helped intensify the area’s popularity. The 11 pieces included in this collection include those by the great Constance Harrison, Marion Crawford, Edward Church, and Ervin Wardman.
