It is the fall of 1980 when Ethel O’Connor follows the letters and pictures in her Momma’s box, the only possession she thinks she inherited from the mother she lost at birth, to the quiet town of Oxford, Maine, where her mother, Stephanie, was born. Ethel and Charlie’s young son isn’t walking, and Ethel wonders if there is some congenital disease she should know about on her mother’s side. But the mystery of her mother is not answered by letters or pictures and certainly not from the visit to Oxford. Instead, more questions surface about Stephanie’s past. Who is Joseph, the boy in the picture with Momma? What does he mean when he refers to, “I’ll never forget what you did for me,” in the letters? Was the untimely drowning of her mother’s best friend an accident? Or was it murder? Poking around Oxford, Ethel discovers her mother left her more than one box of possessions. She left her a house in which Ethel finds a journal. The passages in the journal give Ethel a glimpse into her mother’s life as a young woman growing up. It does not appear congenital disease affected her or anyone in her family. This is the knowledge that Ethel has thirsted for. Or is it? Her mother’s journal reveals her own uneasy secrets, which once uncovered can’t be ignored.

The colorful characters of Piney Bluffs, Caleb, Sadie, Miss Ruthie, Big Beulah, and the rest, remind Ethel of the goodness of small town Maine that surrounds her as she follows the line of truth and justice. In Gone Fishing: The Line, part two of the Gone Fishing trilogy, Ethel goes beyond appearances and prejudices to end the silence of the past.

 Jane Herr Desrosiers is thrilled to bring to her readers the second in the Gone Fishing trilogy, Gone Fishing: The Line. The response that she has received from readers, local book clubs, and followers from the Connecticut Author Trail has been overwhelming. Jane’s sense of humor and ability to turn the plot make this book series truly comfort food for your brain. Spanning her early days growing up in Canterbury, Connecticut, to her residence now in Baltic, Connecticut, life has provided her with down-home New England characters. She enjoys life with her husband, Eddy, and their family, and her two cats, Ozzie, aka Mr. Striper, and Harriet. Watch for Harriet’s appearance in Gone Fishing: The Sinker. Jane is also working on a collection of short stories and poems, portions of which will appear in her blog.

Author does a great job of developing the characters and easily transports us to Piney Bluffs, Maine. The main character is a strong, loyal woman of character, and it was easy to come to care about her. Family, love, humor, suspense—this book has it all. Was a delightful read. I’ll watch for the author’s next release!”

A comprehensive big-game hunting guide for hunters ranging from first-time novices to seasoned experts, with more than 400 photographs, including work by renowned outdoor photographer John Hafner
Steven Rinella was raised in a hunting family and has been pursuing wild game his entire life. In this first-ever complete guide to hunting—from hunting an animal to butchering and cooking it—the host of the popular hunting show MeatEater shares his own expertise with us, and imparts strategies and tactics from many of the most experienced hunters in the United States as well.
This invaluable book includes
• recommendations on what equipment you will need—and what you can do without—from clothing to cutlery to camping gear to weapons
• basic and advanced hunting strategies, including spot-and-stalk hunting, ambush hunting, still hunting, drive hunting, and backpack hunting
• how to effectively use decoys and calling for big game
• how to find hunting locations, on both public and private land, and how to locate areas that other hunters aren’t using
• how and when to scout hunting locations for maximum effectiveness
• basic information on procuring hunting tags, including limited-entry “draw” tags
• a species-by-species description of fourteen big-game animals, from their mating rituals and preferred habitats to the best hunting techniques—both firearm and archery—for each species
• how to plan and pack for backcountry hunts
• instructions on how to break down any big-game animal and transport it from your hunting site
• how to butcher your own big-game animals and select the proper cuts for sausages, roasts, and steaks, and how to utilize underappreciated cuts such as ribs and shanks
• cooking techniques and recipes, for both outdoor and indoor preparation of wild game
