Grenell 1893, A Novel
by Lynn E. McElfresh
Welcome to 1893, an age of technological wonders! Newly-minted millionaires have built palatial summer homes up and down the river. Trains and steamships bring thousands to grand hotels. Even tiny Grenell Island has a posh hotel, the Pullman House. On the other side of the bridge from the hotel, a new resort, Grenell Island Park, is booming. Marguerite Hartranft is now twenty-eight and while both the world and Grenell Island are changing, her older sister and mother are not. They are pressuring Marguerite to find a husband, settle down, and marry. Can she find a husband who will appreciate her love of learning and her love for island life?
