Big Blend Radio’s “ Writers Wednesday” show with Books Forward shines the spotlight on Rachel Field, a National Book Award–winning novelist, a Newbery Medal–winning children’s writer, a poet, playwright, and rising Hollywood success in the early twentieth century. She died at the age of 47 -- right at the pinnacle of her personal happiness and professional acclaim. Fifty years later, writer Robin Clifford Wood went to live in Rachel’s long-neglected home on the rugged shores of an island in Maine and began dredging up Rachel’s history.

On this episode, Robin discuss her book THE FIELD HOUSE, a compelling blend of biography and memoir, that recounts the remarkable life of writer Rachel Field from the perspective of a woman who lived in Field’s old, neglected island home in Maine, sparking a unique sisterhood across time.
