About the Book

Jean Edwards, a Maine native whose ancestry ties her to coastal Maine, began writing poetry as a child. This collection embodies her appreciation of the ocean, rivers, islands and all those who live and work on the Maine coast or sail the seas. Some of these poems are serious, some playful, while others express dreams, thoughts and yearnings. Her recent historical novel, “The Glove,” traced the life of a Maine girl who grew up on Appleton Ridge and became an actress in New York. It was published in 2005. Of “The Glove”, the Camden Herald writes: “ Interspersed throughout the story are Edwards’ own poems, which add poignancy and texture to the narrative.”
