A story of reconnecting to long-forgotten childhood bonds and memories, Debbie Kaiman Tillinghast’s The Ferry Home embraces joyful moments with humor and more troubling emotions with compassion.

If you have ever faced emotional challenges within your family or had a sibling relationship with both squabbles and shared mischief, if you have found peace in one memorable place, or if you have ever longed for any of these, then this book is for you.

Experience the rhythm of life on Prudence Island, the ebb and flow of changing tides and seasons, and the patterns and relationships that emerge. It is a place where independence is fostered, but friends are always there when needed.

As Debbie’s vivid accounts unfold, you will feel like you too have just stepped off the ferry and been embraced by the tiny Prudence Island community.

Debbie has generously offered to gift a copy of The Ferry Home to one lucky winner. Just comment on this post and you’re entered into Debbie’s drawing as well as the Grand Prize and Bonus Prize drawings.

  1. I loved reading this book. Debbie has such a unique way of introducing each story that not only brings you to her memories of Prudence Island but also finds you traveling back to your own! My cousin visited Prudence Island every summer growing up and I loved giving her a copy of the book! A wonderful, peaceful read that is very warm and inspiring!

  3. I purchased this book a few years ago for my boss as a Hanukkah gift. She’s an avid reader and a retired elementary school teacher. She had mentioned once to me about touring Prudence Island and about the one-room schoolhouse, so I thought that this would make a great gift. She really enjoyed reading it.
