Overview

Howard Frank Mosher is one of the best-loved writers of northern New England, one who has “created a literary landscape as textured as anything produced by the U. S. Geological Survey,” according to USA Today. His “greatest gift,” says the Washington Post, is “his talent for creating lively, living characters.” One of his most vivid and memorable characters is Marie Blythe.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, a young girl with a felicitous name immigrates to Vermont from French Canada. She grows up confronting the grim realities of life with an indomitable spirit—nursing victims of a tuberculosis epidemic, enduring a miscarriage alone in the wilderness, and coping with the uncertainties of love. In Marie Blythe, Mosher has created a strong-minded, passionate, and truly memorable heroine.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Mosher writes stories, almost folk tales at times, built out of lost and forgotten history, rooted in a strong sense of place, inhabited with colorful characters. His terrain may be specific, but his themes are universal.”—USA Today

“Mosher has a fine knack for evoking natural beauty—an otter sliding off an icy log, a loon whooping over a dark lake—and he has a convincing sense of adventure.”—Los Angeles Times

“Mosher is a remarkably good observer of nature as well as a born storyteller.”—Boston Herald

“With each book, Mosher fleshes out more of his literary turf, a frontier brimming with men and women who follow their own rules.”—Boston Globe
