Bookreporter Talks To

Jun 28, 2022

Meg Mitchell Moore talks to Carol Fitzgerald about VACATIONLAND, her latest novel, which is set in Maine. The home in the book is loosely based on a home that her friends own in Maine. She loves visiting there and setting a book there was a joy. The book opens with a woman on a bus coming to town, which Meg notes hits the theme --- “a stranger comes to town.” From there why she is there is juxtaposed around the story of Louisa and her children who are set to spend a wonderful summer at their grandparents’ home. But her grandfather is slipping with Alzheimer’s and that causes a pall over the usual summer vibe. She talked about the how she worked on the pacing for secrets kept and secrets revealed.
