When Tom Vincent’s father dies on a foundry floor, the owner offers fourteen-year-old Tom the stewardship of a store on isolated Reach Run Island.

Thus begins the odyssey of Tom Vincent – storekeeper, book lover, telegrapher, fisherman, farmer, healer, union organizer, politician and visionary. A Settlement of a Memory is a story of greed, oppression, love, human frailty and, as Stan Dragland observed, it is “…[a] wonderful tale of the inexorable drive to freedom in the teeth of vested interest….” Constructed with passionate attention to detail, A Settlement of a Memory both imagines the past and explores the power and limitations of vision to shape the future.
