Tom DeMarcoabout this book: • "Brimming with high spirits and rollicking good humor. A delightful tale about what is surely paradise on earth – a summer in Maine."
— Tess Gerritsen, author of Gravity
• "A charming and amusing tale about the triumph of lighthearted goodness over the forces of darkness. Never has a young man's loss of innocence seemed so sweet and touching. Expecting from the title yet another grisly thriller, I was enchanted to discover a sunlit ruin of a summer mansion, full of quirky characters pursuing hilarious private obsessions. I missed this book whenever I had to put it down, and rushed to get back to it."
— Lisa Alther, author of Kinflicks and Other Women
• "Tom DeMarco is a wonderful storyteller. Don't miss this book."
— From the review by Robin Lonski
On an island off the coast of Maine in the late 1940s:
For Liam Dwyer, collegian and would-be aesthete, the Forsythe's summer-long house party had intriguing possibilities. He had hopes it might turn out as a simple little love story, with himself and the lovely Laura as principals. Only nothing was ever simple with Laura. Nothing.
Recalling the lost splendor of an earlier age when the grand stone "cottages" of the rich and famous dotted Maine's coast, Dark Harbor House is an engaging comedy of manners whose quixotic and memorable characters come vividly to life.
