A Summer Read by a Local Author!

Local author K. Stephens’ “The Ghost Trap”

A category I did not think to include in the Vacationland Summer Reading Challenge: Maine Authors.


Luckily for me, local author K. Stephens was kind enough to drop by the library just now, and she told me about her novel The Ghost Trap.

Here’s a description of the book, from the website:

The haunting story of Jamie Eugley, a young lobsterman struggling with the grinding responsibilities of a head-injured fiancé and mounting trap wars, The Ghost Trap is a modern tale with an old-fashioned hero who puts family and heritage before self. In the end it’s not just about lobstering, but about one man’s sorrow for not appreciating the love he had, however damaged. Written with sensitivity and rich description, this is a piercingly accurate depiction of life in a small Maine lobstering community.

You can check out the website at  Be sure to watch the book trailer–it’s very well-done, and gives you a great idea of the atmosphere of the novel!

Thanks again, K. Stephens, for stopping by!
