Sarah Orne Jewett (September 3, 1849 - June 24, 1909) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet, best known for her local color works set along or near the southern seacoast of Maine. Jewett is recognized as an important practitioner of American literary regionalism Jewett's family had been residents of New England for many generations, and Sarah Orne Jewett was born in South Berwick, Maine.Her father was a doctor, and Jewett often accompanied him on his rounds, becoming acquainted with the sights and sounds of her native land and its people. As treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, a condition that developed in early childhood, Jewett was sent on frequent walks and through them also developed a love of nature. In later life, Jewett often visited Boston, where she was acquainted with many of the most influential literary figures of her day; but she always returned to South Berwick, small seaports near which were the inspiration for the towns of "Deephaven" and "Dunnet Landing" in her stories. Jewett was educated at Miss Olive Rayne's school and then at Berwick Academy, graduating in 1866.She supplemented her education through an extensive family library. Jewett was "never overtly religious," but after she joined the Episcopal church in 1871, she explored less conventional religious ideas. For example, her friendship with Harvard law professor Theophilus Parsons stimulated an interest in the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg, an eighteenth-century Swedish scientist and theologian, who believed that the Divine "was present in innumerable, joined forms - a concept underlying Jewett's belief in individual responsibility
Embark on an exploration of southern Cuba as writer JJ Mikel attempts to climb Pico Turquino-the tallest mountain on this largest of Caribbean islands-and encounters a world that is expansive, lush, and full of wonders. Along the way, he discovers that Cuba isn't quite Cuba, not really what we think of when we hear that word. For behind the faÃ§ade of decrepit Communism lurks a complex and startlingly beautiful country with a unique mix of cultures and a friendly, vibrant populace.
Dillon and Lane are surprised and pleased when Lane's Uncle Jim offers them the use of his new 40' Chris-Craft for their trip to Catalina Island and honeymoon cruise to San Diego's Mission Bay. Uncle Jim is a Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy and a father figure to Lane and her sisters. The couple, accompanied by two family members, sails to Catalina Island where the remainder of their small family on both sides joins them for a fun weekend, which culminates in a Saturday evening wedding. After the wedding, Uncle Jim has the newlyweds drop him off on the north side of nearby San Clemente Island on their voyage to Mission Bay. Lane and Dillon reluctantly agree, feeling guilty over his generosity. After delivering Uncle Jim to the island, the newlyweds slowly motor south along the isolated far coast of the island, when suddenly they are both knocked off the deck and into the water. The boat, still in gear, heads ghostly towards Mexican waters. Dillon manages to get them safely to shore, and working together they find food and shelter. After days of being marooned on the island, they find a hysterical young woman calling and searching for her Australian boyfriend. The couple had been camping illegally on the beach with their sailboat anchored nearby. Dillon and Lane soon become embroiled in a web of deceit, international conspiracy, unexplained death, political and naval corruption, kickbacks, and missing persons.
