The Guest Book by Sarah Blake

An exquisitely written, poignant family saga that illuminates the great divide, the gulf that separates the rich and poor, black and white, Protestant and Jew.  Spanning three generations, The Guest Book deftly examines the life and legacy of one unforgettable family as they navigate the evolving social and political landscape from Crockett's Island, their family retreat off the coast of Maine.  Blake masterfully lays bare the memories and mistakes each generation makes while coming to terms with what it means to inherit the past.

Elaine Newton is professor Emeritus of Humanities, Literature and Psychology at York University and a former book critic for the Globe & Mail.  From December to May she is visiting professor of Literature and Film at the Philharmonic for the Arts in Naples, Florida where she has been a Lifelong Learning Favourite for more than 25 Years.
