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
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.”
