Following the success of Snow Island, Katherine Towler returns to the fictional New England island with the second novel in this multi-generational trilogy about family bonds, unexpected love, and the threat of war.
Divorced and struggling to overcome her mother’s recent death, Rachel Shattuck returns from the mainland to care for her ailing father. Her discovery of her mother’s diaries illuminates both the truth about her family history and Rachel’s own aspirations to lead a new life.
Katherine Towler is the author of the novels Snow Island and Evening Ferry. She teaches in the M.F.A. Program in Writing at Southern New Hampshire University and lives in Portsmouth. Visit her at www.katherinetowler.com.
“Evening Ferry succeeds in part because the characters tell an interesting story, but also because of the way the novel takes the reader to a world far removed from present experience. It’s one that seems much more distant than the chronological gap of a mere forty years would lead one to believe.”
