The Shore by Sara Taylor. Sara grew up on the Eastern Shore and now lives in England. The Shore is her first novel and has been getting great press already. Read the review in The Guardian.

Situated off the coast of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay, the group of islands known as the Shore has been home to generations of fierce and resilient women. Sanctuary to some but nightmare to others, it’s a place they’ve inhabited, fled, and returned to for hundreds of years. Together their stories form a deeply affecting legacy of two barrier island families, illuminating 150 years of their many freedoms and constraints, heartbreaks, and pleasures. Conjuring a wisdom and beauty all its own, The Shore is a richly unique, stunning novel that will resonate with readers long after turning its final pages, establishing Sara Taylor as a promising new voice in fiction.

Check out the newest prints from Salisbury artist Erick Sahler. The new Summer Sunset is a  16 x 20 print (framed and unframed).  



HIs new, legacy edition (8x10) of the popular Swing Bridge is also available now in a smaller print that will more easily fit in small spaces. We have framed and unframed editions. Coming June 27 - the new, smaller legacy edition of Lift Off! Just in time for the 70th Anniversary celebration at Wallops!
