The HomePort Journals

Fleeing New York City and an abusive partner, would-be writer Marc Nugent finds work at HomePort, the Provincetown mansion of Lola Staunton, a fabulously wealthy recluse.

Aided by an attractive-but-unattainable artist and an all-too-available female impersonator, Marc investigates accusations of rape and murder that have estranged Lola from a childhood friend for more than sixty years. Past and present converge when a long-lost journal reveals tales of infidelity, adultery, and passion that mirror the life Marc has recently abandoned. When his ex-lover arrives in search of revenge, Marc must confront his past, his notions of family, and his capacity for love.

    

“Evocative, funny, and heartfelt, The HomePort Journals will be to Provincetown what Tales of the City is to San Francisco.”
