These two blogs are about the town of Lamoine Maine and it’s rich history told through diaries, photos, voices past and present, and how they relate to the book "Hold on There, Sadie Coggins!" and to me as an author.

Sadie's Diary 1873

The first diary is from a young girl living in Lamoine, Maine in 1867. Her name was Sarah Matilda King and it played an important role in the writing of the book about Sadie Coggins. While Sadie lived five years later, I suspect their experiences were similar. The second belonged to Eben King, who wrote a few lines every day all his life. Most of them survive, and both are a valuable resource for understanding rural life in the late 1800's.

Lamoine Photos & History

Lamoine has a voice. If one is curious enough it will reveal what lies hidden under altered landscapes and dispersed families. Seemingly disconnected threads emerge from dusty archives and buried memories to weave a story.This quest to find the details of a life, a house, a community is what inspires me to write.
