An Evening of Celebration for Katharine Britton author of LITTLE ISLAND
Join us at Tenacre Country Day School for a reception and booksigning for Katharine Britton to celebrate the publication of her 2nd novel LITTLE ISLAND.
Little Island brings us into the world of Joy and her grandmother's last words left behind on a note:
By the water
A note that Joy’s mother, Grace, has interpreted as instructions for her memorial service. And so, the far-flung clan will gather at their inn on Little Island, Maine, to honor her.
Joy can’t help dreading the weekend. Twenty years ago, a tragedy nearly destroyed the family—and still defines them. Joy, Grace, her father Gar, and twin siblings Roger and Tamar all have their parts to play. And now Joy, facing an empty nest and a nebulous future, feels more vulnerable than ever to the dangerous currents running through her family.
But this time, Joy will discover that there is more than pain and heartbreak that binds them together, when a few simple words lift the fog and reveal what truly matters…
"[A] deeply compassionate story of an extended New England family beleaguered by loss, misunderstandings, and terrible secrets...[Britton] understands how, through love, the human heart can overcome just about anything.”—Howard Frank Mosher
“Acutely rendered details of a beloved natural landscape and [a] wise understanding of complex human hearts. The tale is touched with heartbreak but leavened with humor.”—Reeve Lindbergh, author of Under a Wing and Forward From Here.
