A True Story of Life and Death
a Memoir by Cynthia Thayer
Islandport Press, Fall 2023
In 1976, Cynthia Thayer and her husband, Bill, moved from Massachusetts and began working to methodically transform a dilapidated salt water farm in Gouldsboro, Maine, into Darthia Farm - a certified organic farm, community landmark, and local treasure. Then 40 years later, tragedy struck. Thayer's touching new memoir tells a tale of love, loss, home, and community. Available from Islandportpress.com, Amazon, darthiafarm.com, and independent bookstores.
Cynthia Thayer is also the author of novels, Strong for Potatoes, A Certain Slant of Light, and A Brief Lunacy. She was born in New York City, spent her childhood in Nova Scotia, and has lived on her Downeast Maine farm for almost five decades.
Available for readings, talks, workshops, at libraries, bookstores, book groups, schools.
