Dark Water

Dark Water

Author(s): Elizabeth Lowry

Location(s): Massachusetts

Genre(s): Historical, Fiction

Era(s): 19th Century

A young ship’s doctor from 19th Century Boston sees violence erupt on a ship stalled on an eerily calm ocean. Later, when he works in the humane but eccentric Charlestown Asylum with its curious cast of characters, the perpetrator appears – starving and deranged – as a patient. William Borden was the hero of the Providence, rowing a boat of men across the Pacific to safety after a mutiny. But how did those men really survive, and what has it cost Borden? Dense and delicious, this is a gothic-tinged historical novel by an absolutely masterful writer.
