On Friday June 8th at 7pm, local author Meg Mitchell Moore will speak about and read from her latest novel, So far away, at The Jabberwocky Bookshop.
Her new novel is the unforgettable story of a thirteen year old girl living in Newburyport today, coping with her parent’s divorce and the pain of cyberbullying. Add to the mix the memoirs of a young Irish maid working for the wealthy in the 1920’s, and a lonely librarian and you have the pattern of truly remarkable story in So far away. Able to deftly delineate the nuances of the human heart, Meg Mitchell Moore is a writer you don’t want to miss.
Meg Mitchell Moore currently lives in Newburyport with her husband and three children, and this is her second novel published by Little Brown. Her first, The Arrivals, has just been released in paperback.

"Meg Mitchell Moore's debut novel, The arrivals, reads like the finest of guidebooks, pointing out the beauty and excitement of an untraveled place, yet simultaneously offering readers a map of their own families, with the intricacies, misunderstandings, heartbreak, and forgiveness found there. Under Moore's deft and gloriously talented hand, the best kind of story telling is woven with epiphany, and readers will emerge knowing a place so close to home in an entirely new way." --- Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone Thirteen-year-old Natalie Gallagher is trying to escape: from her parents' ugly divorce, and from the vicious cyber-bullying of her former best friend. Adrift, confused, she is a girl trying to find her way in a world that seems to either neglect or despise her. Her salvation arrives in an unlikely form: Bridget O'Connell, an Irish maid working for a wealthy Boston family. The catch? Bridget lives only in the pages of a dusty old 1920s diary Natalie unearthed in her mother's basement. But the life she describes is as troubling - and mysterious - as the one Natalie is trying to navigate herself, almost a century later.
"I am writing this down because this is my story. There were only ever two people who knew my secret, and both are gone before me." Who was Bridget, and what became of her? Natalie escapes into the diary, eager to unlock its secrets, and reluctantly accepts the help of library archivist Kathleen Lynch, a widow with her own painful secret: she's estranged from her only daughter. Kathleen sees in Natalie traces of the daughter she has lost, and in Bridget, another spirited young woman at risk.
What could an Irish immigrant domestic servant from the 1920s teach them both? As the troubles of a very modern world close in around them, and Natalie's torments at school escalate, the faded pages of Bridget's journal unite the lonely girl and the unhappy widow - and might even change their lives forever. Meg Mitchell Moore is the author of The arrivals. She worked for several years as a journalist and her articles have been published in a wide variety of business and consumer magazines. She received a master's degree in English literature from New York University. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and their three children.
