Read full description of the books:
Ingrid and Greg Snow were a pigeon pair - twins - one male, one female, just like the two eggs that hatch in a pigeon's nest.
Against the backdrop of a seacoast town in Maine, 18-year-old Ingrid Snow tells the stark, poignant story of their growing up.
Life in a crowded tarpaper shack did have its joys, but these were always shadowed by Papa's pride, Mama's day-dreamin', and each year, it seemed, another little mouth to feed. If it hadn't been for Ingrid and Greg's one crazy determination to buy back the beautiful, ancestral Snow home on the main road, there would have been no incentive to leave the back road "camp".
Elisabeth Ogilvie has woven a tense, moving drama about a town, a family - and poverty. This is a truly unusual book.

Read information about the authorElisabeth Ogilvie’s striking evocation of the atmosphere of the Maine seacoast that is the background of The Seasons Hereafter is no accident, for she lived in just such an area for many years, and her love for its people and their way of life has influenced all her novels.
Her activities on Gay’s Island, where she spent most of the year, included writing, gardening, and “trying not to suspect that a bear is at the door, a moose lurking in among the alders, or a horned owl hovering overhead about to bear away the cat.”
She contributed a considerable amount of writing of magazine fiction and children’s books, and is the author of several novels, including There May Be Heaven, The Witch Door, Rowan Head, The Dawning of the Day, Storm Tide, and one book of nonfiction, My World Is an Island.
