From Connie May Fowler, author of the bestselling and award-winning Before Women Had Wings, comes a maritime saga and extraordinary love story between Mattie Blue and her husband, Nick, a fisherman on a small Florida island. Recently widowed and filled with grief, Mattie spins a tale of her beloved husband--his birth, his death, his love of the sea, his haunted fear of a family legend of drowning, and their romantic, unflagging devotion to each other. Setting out to build a new life far removed from her lonely childhood, twenty-two-year-old Mattie expects another dull, efficient working day at the Suwannee Swifty convenience store when Proteus Nicholas Blue stops in and changes her life. Two days after leaving his large, nurturing Greek family on the small island of Lethe, Nick believes he has given up the sea, with its magic and its danger, for good, but their love transforms them both. As she struggles to build a new life--first with and later without Nick, surrounded by her new relatives--we discover along with her the infinite sources of strength to be found in familiar places, the comfort of family, and the healing power of memory. Connie May Fowler is that rare author who is both elegant in her writing and passionate in her storytelling. Although her latest novel begins in the aftermath of a tragic event, her accomplished storytelling reveals how the life-affirming humor, joy, and incredible love between two people can make them so much more than they were alone. An exploration of grief and transcendence, Remembering Blue is as much about the allure and mysteries of the village as about the people who inhabit it. It is an unforgettable, beautifully told story that will affirm Connie May Fowler's place at the forefront of American writers.
