From the acclaimed author of Beach Plum Island and The Wishing Hill... "No one does it better than Holly Robinson.”—Susan Straight, National Book Award Finalist and Author of Between Heaven and Here

Catherine and Zoe are sisters, but even their mother, Eve, admits her daughters are nothing alike. Catherine is calm and responsible. Zoe is passionate and rebellious.  Nobody is surprised when Zoe gets pregnant, drops out of college, and spirals into drug addiction.

One night Catherine gets a call from Zoe’s terrified daughter, Willow, saying her mother has abandoned her in a bus station and disappeared. Eve blames herself, while Catherine, unable to have children, is delighted to raise Willow as her own.

Now, five years later, Eve is grieving her husband’s death and making reluctant plans to sell the family’s beloved summer home on Prince Edward Island. But a series of unexpected revelations will upend the family and rock three generations of women.

Early Praise for Chance Harbor:

“Oh the sneaky wonder of Chance Harbor by Holly Robinson. This book has the heart, intrigue, and secrets of Shakespeare but is written with the sensual prose or our time. If you are looking for a book that surprises all the way through, this is the book for you.”Ann W. Garvin, author of The Dog Year

“Chance Harbor is a genuine, moving portrayal of the intricacies of relationships between sisters, mothers and daughters. Robinson’s skillful storytelling, smooth pacing and vivid characters combine to show us that no matter our secrets, misgivings and mistakes, compassion is the most precious human virtue. A truly authentic, engrossing story.”Sonja Yoerg, author of House Broken and Middle of Somewhere

“Both heartbreaking and hopeful, Chance Harbor explores the depth of loyalty, commitment, and family bonds. . . .Beautifully written and full of real-life struggle,  this is a first-class novel.”
RT Book Reviews

“Robinson specializes in emotionally potent ensemble fiction, featuring realistic characters in dramatic situations. The plot is intricate, with numerous narrators presenting their points of view, and the characters are sympathetic and realistically flawed. . .Robinson’s writing keeps getting better, and this exploration of family bonds and love in its many forms will appeal to mainstream-women’s-fiction fans.”Booklist
