Read full description of the books Evening Ferry:Following on from the success of Snow Island (2002), Katherine Towler returns to the fictional New England island with Evening Ferry—the second installment of the multi-generational trilogy about family bonds, unexpected love, and the threat of war.
Thirty-two-year-old Rachel Shattuck grew up on Snow Island but left at the age of eighteen, anxious to escape the confines of the isolated community. Living on the mainland, just a short ferry ride away from Snow, she struggles to adjust to being divorced while grieving the recent death of her mother.
In the summer of 1965, she returns to Snow Island to care for her injured father and discovers her mother’s diaries hidden in a closet. Reading Phoebe Shattuck’s account of her life as a wife and mother, Rachel learns the truth about her family’s history, her mother’s death, and her own aspirations to lead a new life.
In elegant prose and inspired storytelling, Towler gives us a moving portrait of two women and the island they come to call home, at a time when the world is changing, and a new generation faces war.
