I hope you enjoy reading about this special place of Charlevoix, Michigan. My family has lived in the area going back over 100 years, and I spent the summers of my youth there. I've tried to capture some of the exceptional history of the area in this fictional account.From the Back Cover:
The Seasons of the EmmaLee takes you back to a small town in northern Michigan in the years before World War II, to share the life of Emily Compton, a young woman of privilege whose family lives in an exclusive summer resort enclave. Her father owns the magnificent cruising yacht, the EmmaLee. Jonathan McKendry, son of a local boatyard owner, finds himself tragically drawn into their world by his attraction to the ship and the Compton's daughter.
The story simultaneously tracks the meeting of two people decades later who are drawn together by the return of the EmmaLee to Charlevoix. Sally Thomason, a descendent of the family that first owned the ship, struggles with tragedy linked to her family's history. She meets Alex Clark, the new owner of the EmmaLee, and as their relationship grows they search for common ground to help each other move beyond the past to build new lives.
This compelling first novel from Michael Lindley plays out against a beautiful scenic backdrop and historical context that captures a time when the country was divided so dramatically by social class and position.
