Press Release

A.B. Bourne at the Jesup Library

BAR HARBOR, Maine — “The First Secret of Edwin Hoff is a compelling thriller and an imaginative reflection on our times—but it’s also a meditation on what it means to be a mentor and to pass along ways of moving in the world. The life lessons here will stir the reader as powerfully as the plot twists.”

—Eric Liu, author of Guiding Lights: How to Mentor and Find Life’s Purpose
