Synopsis: Caitlin Gray has come to remote Alabaster Island to escape her troubled family life, which is falling apart because of her husband?s affair and a horrific car accident. She meets Freddy Orcutt, an old-time islander who embraces her as a daughter, and O?zalik Mosely, a Native American who is trying to preserve her heritage while battling her own private disturbances. Caitlin helps O?zalik publish an account of a tragic event that
happened to her people many years before but the islanders become incensed when they are forced to confront their ancestors? atrocities.
Island of First Light is a portrait of human nature and the sense of family that we all search for when faced with adversity. Norman Gautreau brings alive the rugged Maine coast, reflecting a landscape that can be as turbulent as the lives of the people that live there.
