Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Julie Weathers isn't sure if she's running away or starting over, but the sun-washed, sea-stormed small town in Maine holds so much promise. The idea of teaching a one-room schoolhouse seems quaint and delightful - the perfect way to start over. But she soon realizes that things aren't as idyllic as she first believed. Julie comes to suspect that she may have traded one place shrouded in trouble for another, and she has to wonder if the greatest danger on Mercy Island is the sea, or the people"-- Provided by publisher.
"Julie Weathers isn't sure if she's running away or starting over, but moving to a remote island off the coast of Maine feels right for someone with reasons to flee her old life. The sun-washed, sea-stormed speck of land seems welcoming, the lobster plentiful, and the community close and tightly knit. She finds friends in her nearest neighbor and Callum, a man who appears to be using the island for the same thing as she: escape.But as Julie takes on the challenge of teaching the island's children, she comes to suspect that she may have traded one place shrouded in trouble for another, and she begins to wonder if the greatest danger on Mercy Island is its lost location far out to sea, or the people who live there."-- Back cover.

    Julie Weathers is a broken woman finding solace in the bottom of a bottle after the death of her young daughter and subsequent separation from her husband. Escaping from her small town, Julie takes a job as a teacher on remote Mercy Island off the coast of Maine. Mercy seems picture-perfect, and readers will enjoy the lovely world Milchman creates, depicting the picturesque town, its weather, and townspeople. While Julie is initially charmed by island life, she quickly learns that a powerful family is hiding behind the island's beautiful facade, and Julie is treading a little too close to their darkest secrets. The Second Mother is less of a thriller, but will appeal to readers of contemporary women's fiction, since the majority of the book focuses on Julie's grief and efforts toward sobriety. The story takes deep dives into side stories to explore this, though the suspenseful momentum is geared up in the last quarter of the book. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
