Product Overview

Miriam Colwell's Contentment Cove-her fourth novel set in Maine and her first in more than five decades-is a riveting story of class distinctions in a 1950s Down East coastal village during a time of cultural change. Dot-Fran, Hilary, and Mina are three residents of a Maine coastal village in the 1950s. Dot-Fran, the youngest, is a native; she runs the town's drug store. Hilary, middle-aged, is a worldly artist. The wealthy Mina and her husband retired to the town after being enchanted with its charm during a one-night visit. Their disparate lives become entwined and eventually clash tragically. The story, which features recognizable Maine characters and those "from away," takes place over only a matter of days one summer. While Maine-native Colwell infuses Contentment Cove with humor, it is a novel that deals with serious issues that remain relevant today, none more compelling than the erosion of one way of Maine life and the evolution of another.
