When an unsuspecting bride gets into a boat one stormy June day in 1912, Thaddeus takes her far out to sea to the end of Popplestone Isle. There harbor folk welcome Mildred with hopeful joy, but she discovers the tiny fishing village is headed for a most dreadful end. On Harbor’s Edge is the first story in a series of dramatic, generationally layered tales from 1912 to the present. Some of the hurdles Mildred May Gale and her neighbors face still challenge those on small islands today.

“Captivating! On Harbor’s Edge hooked me line and sinker with fascinating characters and dramatic plots brilliantly layered in Maine island life a hundred years ago. Can’t wait for the sequel!” – Linda Greenlaw

“Kate Hotchkiss captures the workings of an island here in one fantastic novel. On Harbor’s Edge gives us real Maine on the page: men and women working hard on the sea and finding big love with all its complications, while Hotchkiss shows us the extraordinary life force needed to keep an island village alive. On Harbor’s Edge brings us to Maine and lets us live on the island with her characters in a way that no other Maine story I’ve read has done.” – Susan Conley
