A Stone’s Throw from the Heart

Winterguide 2012

Morgan Callan Rogers’s Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea may have crisscrossed the Atlantic, but her debut novel roots us on our rocky coast.

Maine novelist Morgan Callan Rogers has a real need for writing: “I had this voice,” she says. “She just kept talking to me.” That voice was Florine Gilham, the main character of her debut book, Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea. Released through Viking Press this month, Callan Rogers’s narrative pulls us vividly through 320 pages of empathetic adolescence, startling loss, and kindling love.
