Dark Harbor PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dark Harbor free pdf When Ved Mehta was first invited to Isleboro, a narrow thirteen-mile long island off the west coast of Maine, he could not have imagined the far-reaching consequences of his visit. Seduced by a dream of putting down roots, he finds himself buying a fifteen-acre parcel of land in the rugged terrain of Dark Harbor. To build his house, Mehta hires the architect Edward Larrabee Barnes, famous for designing the IBM Building in New York and the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine. In sparse and evocative prose, Mehta describes the follies of constructing a house on an island far removed from that other island, Manhattan, where he lives.
