By Abi Maxwell

Abi Maxwell grew up in a small town in the Lakes region of New Hampshire. She came to Missoula to study fiction writing at UM and wrote this debut novel with the teaching guidance of Deirdre McNamer in the Creative Writing Program. The story is about Alice Thornton, who was found as a baby in a boathouse by the lake. Maxwell takes her character on a search for the people she came from, connection to place, and lasting love.
