SARAH BLAKE, The Guest Book: A Novel
Kitty and her husband are both from families considered the backbone of the country. While they summer on their island in Maine, anchored as they are to the way things have always been, the winds of change are beginning to stir.
In 1959 New York City, two strangers enter the Miltons’ circle. One captures the attention of Kitty’s daughter, Evie, while the other makes each of them question what the family stands for. In present day, Evie doesn’t have enough money to keep the island in Maine. When her mother dies, Evie digs into her family history, finding a story as unsettling as it is inescapable, threatening the foundation of the Milton family myth.
Moving through three generations and back and forth in time, The Guest Book asks how we remember and what we choose to forget. It shows the untold secrets we inherit and pass on, unknowingly echoing our parents and grandparents.
