Product Description

Product Description

In the tradition of Upstairs, Downstairs and Downton Abbey, BY THE SEA is a four-book series that sweeps from the Gilded Age through the Gatsby Era's Roaring Twenties and then on to the Great Depression, culminating nearly a century later in Newport, Rhode Island, wealthy and alluring "City by the Sea." Set against a backdrop of mansions, the glorious America's Cup Yacht Races, and new money, the series traces the passions and adventures of three families from three different classes. 


Book One: TESS.  From the wild decadence of late nineteenth-century Newport comes the tale of Tess Moran, a beautiful Irish housemaid in one of the grand summer "cottages," who makes a dark bargain with a man of commanding wealth -- and falls in love in the bargain.  (AUTHOR'S NOTE:  this book now includes a new last chapter to Tess's story.  If  you bought the initial version with 16 chapters, you can find the new Chapter 17 on my website at antoinettestockenberg.com )

Also available:
Book Two: AMANDA
Book Three:  LAURA
Book Four: THE HEIRS

More About the Author

USA Today bestselling novelist Antoinette Stockenberg grew up wanting be a cowgirl and have her own horse (her great-grandfather bred horses for the carriage trade back in the old country), but the geography just didn't work out: there weren't many ranches in Chicago. Her other, more doable dream was to write books, and after stints as secretary, programmer, teacher, grad student, boatyard hand, office manager and magazine writer (in that order), she achieved that goal, writing over a dozen novels, several of them with paranormal elements. One of them is the RITA award-winning EMILY'S GHOST.

Stockenberg's books have been published in eleven languages and are often set in quaint New England harbor towns, always with a dose of humor. She writes about complex family relationships and the fallout that old, unearthed secrets can have on them. Sometimes there's an old murder. Sometimes there's an old ghost. Sometimes once-lovers find one another after half a lifetime apart.

Her work has been compared to writers as diverse as LaVyrle Spencer, Nora Roberts and Mary Stewart by critics and authors alike, and her award-winning novels have appeared on bestseller lists in USA Today as well as the national bookstore chains. Her website features sample chapters, numerous reviews, and many photos, as well as a charming Christmas section. www.antoinettestockenberg.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book but left wanting more 14 Aug 2013
By EDITH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very good book which is what I call easy reading however I was left wanting more as came to an abrupt end at only 80%. Did look to see if new book followed on but could not find one as By the Sea Book Two is about another person altogether,
Have several of this Authors books and will continue to purchase further reading material.
