The Field House: A Writer’s Life Lost and Found on an
Island in Maine is a biography memoir hybrid that recounts the life of Rachel Field, a renowned author, poet, and playwright from the 1920s to the 1940s. Field’s once-cherished summer home became the property of writer Robin Clifford Wood and her husband in the 1990s. Wood soon fell under the spell of island, house, and Field herself, whose presence whispered from the dusty corners and creaking floorboards. It took Wood ten years to uncover the mysteries surrounding Field’s life, ten years that transformed her own life and career.
