PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO MEETING IN FEBRUARY
From the best-selling author of “The Weight of Water” and “The Pilot’s Wife” : an exquisitely suspenseful new novel about an extraordinary young woman tested by a catastrophic event and its devastating aftermath–based on the true story of the largest fire in Maine’s history. In October 1947, after a summer long drought, fires break out all along the Maine coast and are soon racing out of control from town to village. In the end stoicism, kindness and courage win the day over bitterness and cruelty.
