The Maine Point

When Anna Malone, a celebrated screenwriter, rents the second-floor apartment of the lightkeeper’s house at Marshall Point, the view inspires her first novel. As she prepares to publish, she meets a New York editor, and they soon discover their Maine connection: Their grandmothers, both daughters of Yankee sea captains, were cousins who left Maine in the 1930s to work at National Screen Service in midtown Manhattan. Their paths diverged during World War II, as one became a Navy nurse and the other the owner of an iconic movie theater. Weaving present and past together, The Maine Point continues the story of Daughters of Long Reach and illuminates how Maine tides bring a family home.
