The stars are fire by anita shreve

historical FICTION, 320 PP

Despite living in Massachusetts my entire life, I never knew a wildfire ravaged the Maine coastline in 1947. At the core of The Stars are Fire, relationships are burnt and lit driven by their pasts, and their futures. Sadly, The Stars are Fire was Anita’s last book when she lost her battle with cancer in 2018. Tribute for Anita Shreve

The Weight of Water by Anita Shreve. Alternating from the past with an unsolved crime in 1873 to the present, Ms. Shreve weaves the two time periods together in a seamless manner.

That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.
