Overview

Marie Blythe by Howard Frank Mosher

Winner of the Vermont Arts Council Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts (2006)

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.
