LYMAN — Journal Tribune nature columnist and author Rachel Lovejoy recently published her third short novel on Amazon, entitled “The House.”

The story is set during the early 1960s in a fictional southern Maine town, and follows the adventures of a small group of misfit kids who come upon an old abandoned house that will change their lives forever. During one summer, their experiences involving the old cottage prove in various ways to be the stepping-off point for all of them from childhood to adulthood, but more so for the oldest member of the group, whose own discoveries and interactions there leave a profound and lasting mark upon her.
