Meet the Author: Stephen Russell Payne
Join us in welcoming local author Stephen Russell Payne back to Bridgeside Books with his latest novel, Life on a Cliff. Life on a Cliff is the long-awaited sequel to Cliff Walking.
About the Book: This suspenseful new story takes us back to Winter's Cove, Maine where famous seascape artist Francis Monroe has come to deeply love Kate Johnson and her artistic son, Stringer. After being tracked from California to Maine by their abusive husband and father, Leland, they survive a brutal attack and subsequent brutal trial. Francis then expects they can all enjoy a normal life together. Kate, however, is anything but settled as her old demons threaten to destroy the good life she and Francis have fought so hard to create.
Set on the coast of Maine, Life on the Cliff explores how deeply-rooted we are in our established ways and that change, in its many forms, can be exceedingly hard to accept--even if it is for the better.
