Brigid Peterson is the new minister in the remote seaside town of Sand Hill.  The year is 1980 and her parishioners are wary and even hostile to a woman in the pulpit.  She finds a kindred spirit in her new friend Mary Bradley, an artist who believes in the goddess.  But Mary has fallen hopelessly in love with a local drifter, and Brigid's marriage is beginning to crumble, and when Brigid preaches about the female side of God, the whole town divides over her.  Both women have to dive deeper into their spiritual life to find the way through.

Sea Level is a story about ordinary small town life, the mystical landscape of the Delmarva Peninsula, and the passions that erupt over conflicts of belief.

Review:

Sea Level is a vibrant story of manners and place...in her evocative descriptions of the town of Sand Hill from the point of view of Mary Bradley, an artist who returns home from Manhattan and falls in love with a difficult, elusive man, Kilgore treads the same territory as Alice Munro.  It’s quiet, indeed, but for readers who prefer the domestic to the apocalyptic, Sea Level is worth seeking.
            - Seven Days: Vermont’s Independent Voice

Sea Level brings to life the tensions that inevitably arise when a new minister is taken on by a congregation mired in its traditions and uncertain whether it wants leadership or obedience. - C. Michael Curtis, Fiction Editor, The Atlantic

More than just a novel about a woman in ministry; more than just a tale about a small town church; Sea Level is a story about life and the real ways we learn to live in community. A touching narrative about things that matter. - Lynne Hinton, author of Friendship Cake and Pie Town

What a pleasure... a simple plot fleshed out and crafted beautifully and originally, like one of Mary's canvases. The scenes are so vividly painted, the characters so carefully created, that I feel like I've been to Sand Hill, visited with Mary and... Brigid, and care for them enough that a day later, I am still thinking about them, wondering what happens next. - Tania Aebi, author of Maiden Voyage

Kilgore’s tale of a church in turmoil captures the mean spiritedness of petty politics in a small community – and how a death provides a chance for communal redemption.  - Deborah Lee Luskin, author of Into the Wilderness
