Author Talk: Eva and Henry, A Cape Cod Marriage by Irene Paine
May 8 2 p.m. RSVP-Free Independent Publishers 2011 Silver Award for Best Regional Fiction for the North-East! After five years of spending a few hours each day with the main characters of this novel, Eva and Henry, A Cape Cod Marriage, I am going to sorely miss them. As the Civil War in the United States was ending, a little girl was born near the shores of Blackfish Harbor. Her name was Eva Weston Paine, and she was the first child of a sea captain who himself was from a very large family. She would be one of only two children. Her younger brother was born a year after she was. His name was Lewis, and he was to become my great grandfather. Just a short distance away from Eva’s home, there lived a young boy, Henry Smith, who was a distant cousin and an only child. Meet author Irene Paine as she discusses her book and experience daily life back in the South Wellfleet of the 1880s – the decade of Eva and Henry’s marriage.
