Blown Apart

Blown Apart by Margaret E. Brinton


When the United States was still neutral before WWII, a house of suspected Nazi spies was blown up in a small town in Maine. One of the young men who committed the crime ran to an island off the coast and got a job, only to discover that his employer was the lover of a Nazi submarine captain at anchor nearby. Based on a true story, a lost quality of life is recovered through the eyes of an artist. 

"Margaret Brinton paints that old Maine life in a way that tells me she has known it . . . in the deep way that shows the fabric of the days and nights. The structure is neat and tightly woven. Impressive. Nothing extra or wasted . . . I believe all of the characters . . . Dialogue is beautiful . . . The voice is consistent and real throughout." 

-From the afterword by Elizabeth Cooke, English & Creative Writing Prof. Emeritus, University of Maine, Farmington
