Reviews

"Dark (Think of England) celebrates women's friendships and artistic mentorship in this expansive yet intimate novel. The families and their grudges and grievances fill a broad canvas, and within it Dark delves deeply into the relationships between Agnes and her work, humans and the land, mothers and children, and, most indelibly, the sustenance and joy provided by a long-held female friendship. It's a remarkable achievement." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"I positively inhaled this novel--and then stingily meted out the last few pages, not wanting it to end. FELLOWSHIP POINT is a marvel--masterfully executed, beautifully layered, huge-hearted and sharp-witted--and Alice Elliott Dark is a writer of great empathy and incredible skill."

--Claire Lombardo, New York Times Bestselling author of The Most Fun We Ever Had
"I fell into Fellowship Point--fell in step and in love with its characters, with its landscape, with its ideas about art and marriage and, above all, friendship. It's a beautifully passionate book about what it means to love a place and to love all the people of your life, and how life itself is a riveting plot and deep mystery."

---Elizabeth McCracken, New York Times bestselling author of Bowlaway and The Giant's House
"Alice Elliott Dark is a writer I've long admired. With the splendid, engrossing Fellowship Point she has written a novel that is both sweeping and intimate as it deftly explores friendship, class, and the tricky nature of time."

--Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Female Persuasion and The Interestings
"Fellowship Point is deeply relevant in its concerns--about the land, the creatures who inhabit it, and the legacies of ownership, stewardship, and friendship--but it's also just a great, absorbing, and transformative read. Like a Maine glade, Dark's book is filled with light." -- Jo Ann Beard, author of Festival Days and In Zanesville
"Fellowship Point is a marvel. Intricately constructed, utterly unique, this novel set on the coast of Maine is filled with insights about writing, about the perils and freedoms of aging, about the great mysteries, as well as the pleasures, of life. The story about the relationships between three women unfolds, as life does, through joys and losses, confrontations and confessions, with twists along the way that change your perception of all that came before. This is a world is so closely and acutely observed that I felt I lived in it. I was sorry to leave." -- Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"I can't remember the last time I've fallen so hard for a book. Fellowship Point is about many things: friendship, secrets, legacy, love, family--but the true magic here is in the writing. Alice Elliott Dark has conjured a world so immersive I can still feel it in my bones. I mourned the finish, when I would have to leave behind the characters I grew to love. This captivating, unforgettable novel is thrillingly good." -- Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of Nest and Good Company
