The Other Island: Ben’s Story | Barbara Kent Lawrence


In Islands of Time, Becky Granger, daughter of a prominent New York family visiting Maine for the summer, told her story about falling in love with Ben Bunker, islander from a family of Maine fishermen. Now, in the sequel, Ben tells his own side of the story. Ben’s account deepens our understanding of the characters and events in Islands of Time, but stands as a compelling story on its own. Ben, now a fisherman and a marine biologist, also shares his experience and perspective on the changing fisheries of the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank, and the ways in which the changes affect his family and community, and well as all of us who share this planet and its oceans.
