Publisher's Summary

Sarah Moriarty's stunning debut is a portrait of the family scars and faults passed along the generations, brilliantly capturing life on the Maine coastline, where time seems to stand still even as the waters never stop moving.

On an island in Maine, four siblings arrive at their sprawling, old summer place for the Fourth of July. It's the Willoughbys' first summer without their parents, and their beloved house is falling apart. When a substantial offer is made on the estate, the two brothers and two sisters are forced to confront issues they had hoped to keep hidden.

An homage to the layers and limits of the family bond, North Haven explores the shifting allegiances between siblings as they contend with their inheritance, the truth of family lore, and even the veracity of their own memories. This lyrical and moving novel delves into the secret world that exists between parents, one their children don't fully understand, much as they may think they do.

    Story
    "Literally Literature"

    I do not even recall why downloaded this novel, but I'm so glad that I did. I am already looking forward to re-reading it. The author captures the beauty and essence of Maine's costal lifestyle, while unraveling a beautiful story of four adult siblings drawing closer together after their mother's death. The writing is almost poetic in the often subtle symbolism makes the story exquisite.

    Story
    "Tedious"
    What would have made North Haven better?

    I don't know if I'll get past (26%) the preparing and cooking of a lobster dinner which goes on for pages, boringly, discussing how each person tears apart and eats their lobster! Almost, if not, a full chapter. I feel that way too much time was spent on a lot of unimportant stuff! Reading might be better since one can skip over the repetitiveness.

    What would have made North Haven better?

    Another story about Summer People. Should have more local color.


    What could Sarah Moriarty have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have it sound like North Haven. This story could have taken place anywhere.
