Two Harbors

Published by Harcourt under the name Kate Benson (2005)

“At once cinematic and particular, Benson’s novel of duplicity and mystery … expresses the longing for a safe harbor that all of us experience.” — Washington Post

“Haunting, lush, and lyrical…. Weaving a sensitive psychological portrait with a powerful tale of pursuit, Benson writes with a poetic voice as passionate as it is precise.” — Booklist
