My Book Beginnings is taken from THE SUMMER WIVES by Beatriz Williams:


“I returned to Winthrop Isand on an unseasonable cold da in early May, one week after my tenth wedding anniversary.  I missed the last ferry from New London—the schedule, not surprisingly, had changed in the eighteen years since I last climbed aboard—and hired an old tub or a fishing boat to carry me across from Stonington.”
