by Irene M. Drago

Sequel to Daughters of Long Reach.

When Anna Malone, a celebrated screenwriter, rents the second-floor apartment of the lightkeeper’s house at Marshall Point, the view inspires her first novel. As she prepares to publish, she meets a New York editor, and they soon discover their Maine connection: Their grandmothers, both daughters of Yankee sea captains, were cousins who left Maine in the 1930s to work at National Screen Service in midtown Manhattan. Their paths diverged during World War II, as one became a Navy nurse and the other the owner of an iconic movie theater. Weaving present and past together, The Maine Point continues the story of Daughters of Long Reach and illuminates how Maine tides bring a family home.


Award-winning author Irene M. Drago grew up in a Navy family. Before moving to Maine, she worked for the Defense Department as a Russian analyst, earned a Master of Arts degree in Spanish language and literature, and taught at the high school and college level. When she fell under the spell of a historic home in Bath, she convinced her husband to follow her to the coast of Maine, where she was inspired to write Daughters of Long Reach and its sequel, The Maine Point. Ms. Drago is the recipient of a Next Generation Indie Book Award and a Spirit of Bath Award. In the summer, she and her husband enjoy piloting their boat around Casco Bay with their children and grandchildren.
