"Captivating! On Harbor’s Edge hooked me line and sinker with fascinating characters and dramatic plots brilliantly layered in Maine island life a hundred years ago. Can’t wait for the sequel!" – LINDA GREENLAW

When an unsuspecting bride gets into a boat one stormy June day in 1912, Thaddeus takes her far out to sea to the end of Popplestone Isle. There harbor folk welcome Mildred with hopeful joy, but she discovers the tiny fishing community his headed for a most dreadful end. In her efforts to save their treasured island home, Mildred must risk losing everything she holds dear.

On Harbor’s Edge is the first story in a series of dramatic, generationally layered tales from 1912 to the present, set against the backdrop of magnificent coastal scenery award-winning author Susan Conley describes as “so rich it is its own character.” While the Popplestone Isle drama is fictional, some of the hurdles Mildred May Gale and her neighbors face starting over a hundred years ago still challenge those on small islands today.
