When Anna Malone, a Maine screenwriter, rents an apartment at Marshall Point, she’s inspired to write about its historic lighthouse. As she prepares to publish her first novel, she meets Dan Leone, a New York editor, and they soon discover their Maine connection: Their grandmothers, Stella Rose and Penélope Solis, both daughters of Yankee sea captains, were cousins who left Bath in the 1930s to work at National Screen Service in midtown Manhattan. Their paths diverged during World War II, as one became a Navy nurse and the other the owner of an iconic movie theater. Weaving present and past together, The Maine Point continues the story of Daughters of Long Reach and illuminates how “fair winds and following seas” can bring a family home.
