Summary
  • In this collection of nine interconnected stories, the community of Abbot Falls, Maine reacts to a near-retiree's endeavor to build an ark in his backyard, in an effort to find new meaning in life
  • Acclaimed novelist Monica Wood again turns her keen eye and wry humor to small town Maine. Nine interrelated stories create a layered and complex portrait of a community in the midst of crisis as a strike wears on at the paper mill, and the residents of Abbott Falls feel the reverberations of the town's shifting fortune. Ernie, just days shy of retirement when the strike hits, finds new purpose in building an ark in the backyard. Written with a quiet grace and lyrical power, Ernie's Ark is a moving work by a writer who understands the vagaries and hopes of the human heart
