NEW MANUSCRIPT: Islands of Timeby Barbara Lawrence on 09/01/11
I've "finished" a novel set in Maine that I've worked on over several years. It's a love story between a summer girl and a year-round boy and love song to a place that has drawn me back for more than 50 years. Several friends have read and commented, most recently Charlie, who has known me since we were 18. (Please see part of his comment below). If you want to read the manuscript and comment please let me know.
Islands "is an interesting and compelling book. I find the characters believable, and the development of Becky ... especially so. The parts of the greatest interest to me are her interior monologues, the atmospherics of Maine and your writing about nature, and the ongoing discussion of social class."
