Saturday, July 13th, from 1:00-3:00 Beyond the Sea Gallery, Lincolnville Beach will host Author Jennifer Wixson, for a book signing of her new release, Pease, Beans & Corn.
The romance of a bygone era infuses Book 2 in The Sovereign Series, when Maine Army Guardsman Bruce Gilpin, 35, returns to Sovereign with the secret dream of restarting the town’s old sweet corn canning factory. He’s encouraged in his mission by the passionate young organic foodie Amber Johnson, 21, who reawakens his youthful heart. The course of their true love becomes muddied by their well-meaning mothers, however, and by the arrival of Bruce’s ex-wife Sheila and the handsome corporate attorney Ryan MacDonald, who hits town to rusticate. History pervades this little tale of hummingbird moths and morning mists, horse-drawn sleighs and corn dislikers, and the words of the poet Emily Dickinson, who could have been describing Sovereign when she once wrote: “I went to Heaven-‘Twas a small Town.”
Jennifer Wixon, a Maine farmer, writer and ininerant Quaker minister, lives in Troy where she and her husband raise Scottish Highland cattle.
