The Weir: A Novel of the Maine Coast [Paperback] Moore, Ruth


The Weir, written in 1943, takes place on a small island fishing village in the years before World War II, set against a backdrop of handwork and struggle. Ruth Moore, one of the great regional novelists of the twentieth century, brilliantly and authentically captures not only the specific characteristics of coastal Maine, but chronicles universal human drama as the two primary families feud, gossip, and struggle all while being battered by the relentless tides of change sweeping over their community and their entire way of life. This reissue of Ruth Moore’s debut novel includes a new introduction.
