The Captain’s Daughter by Meg Mitchell Moore. Published by Doubleday

Eliza Barnes should be a happy woman, she’s married with two children and a very comfortable life in a cushy Massachusetts town. But she finds herself missing Maine,  and the little town where she grew up as the daughter of a lobsterman. It’s only after her father is injured that Eliza gives in to her feelings and returns to Maine, only to learn her father is in much worse shape than she knew. Surrounded by childhood friends, including her first real love, Eliza begins to question the choices she made. As a Maine native myself, I always read books about my home state with a little trepidation (I once read a book where someone described a very angry-looking moose), but Moore knows her stuff and portrays Maine, the good, the bad, and the ugly, realistically in her lovely story about going home
