Fleeing New York City and an abusive partner, would-be writer Marc Nugent finds work at HomePort, the Provincetown mansion of Lola Staunton, a fabulously wealthy recluse. Aided by an attractive-but-unattainable artist and an all-to-available cross-dresser, Marc investigates accusations of rape and murder that have estranged Lola from a childhood friend for more than sixty years. Past and present converge when a long-lost journal reveals tales of infidelity, adultery, and passion that mirror the life Marc has recently abandoned. When his ex-lover arrives in search of revenge, Marc must confront his past, his notions of family, and his capacity for love.
Five (Huge) Boundless Stars
The Homeport Journals in one word: “WOW”. There are so many wonderful stories in the one book. The lives of so many wonderfully unique characters’; both past and present, are shared with readers at the deepest of all levels. There is so much emotion in this book, it makes a high school girls bathroom at lunch feel like watching grass grow. We hear the captain’s story of the past through his journals, while experiencing the dramatic life of its readers in modern day. The good kind of drama, that is. There are so many entertaining characters, every reader will relate to one. My favorite, Helena! Oh wait ‘til you meet her. The stories of all the characters will pull at your heart strings at times, and have you literally laughing out loud the next.
A.C. gives wonderful conclusions to so many stories; however, I was left wanting more! I could not put this book down. A HUGE 5 Boundless Stars for The Homeport Journals, and a hope to read more from A.C. Burch.
