Pink Chimneys

  Author:   Ardeana Hamlin    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

Nineteenth-century Bangor, known as the Queen City, is a city of sharp contrasts–from the elegant mansions of Broadway, built from lumber fortunes and bootlegged alcohol money to the poverty-stricken Joppa neighbourhood lined with taverns and frequented by desperate men and “fallen women.” To survive, Maude, a headstrong midwife, Fanny, the rags-to-riches housemistress of the infamous Pink Chimneys brothel, and Elizabeth, an orphaned, demure seamstress, must form unlikely alliances and discover the strength to overcome the odds in a culture that tries–and fails–to limit their potential.

Ardeana Hamlin grew up in Bingham, Maine, in the 1950s and 1960s, in the days of the river drives and the woods operations. She has always loved writing; Hamlin wrote her first fiction at age 12 and her first poetry at age 16. She was a newspaper journalist for the Bangor Daily News for over half a decade. Hamlin is the author of three novels, Abbott's Reach, A Dream of Paris, and The Havener Sisters. She has lived for forty years in the same neighbourhood in Hampden, Maine.
