Stealing History

  Author:   William D. Andrews    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

Just a few days into her new job as a director of a busy historical society and museum in a western Maine town, Julie Williamson finds that all is not as it should be. She expected an eccentric board of trustees, a cool reception from the assistant director who had wanted her job, and the need to adjust to small-town life; but she didn’t expect that some of the museum’s most valuable artifacts –including a letter from Abraham Lincoln–would turn up missing. Nor did she expect murder. Julie becomes embroiled in an ever-widening and complex mystery that will keep you guessing right up until the last page.

William D. Andrews, author of Breaking Ground and Stealing History, spent summers in Maine for eighteen years until he could find a job to justify a permanent move. That happened in 1989 when he became president of Westbrook College in Portland. Over the years, Andrews has come to love historical societies, which he calls "wonderful, quirky places inhabited by colourful characters with a passion for local history." Julie Williamson, the puzzle-loving protagonist of his mystery novels, is a natural extension of his varied interests. Andrews divides his time between homes in Newry and Portland. When he isn't writing, he reads, skis, snowshoes, cooks, and plays tennis.
