Interestly, the real Fortunes Rock is in Maine, it's part of Biddeford, (my mother was born and grew up there). Why Anita Shreve had to change it's location is beyond me).
I know I've found NH references in other books as well, just can't think of them off the top of my head. Since John Irving lives here, I think he often uses NH as a locale...Hotel New Hampshire...or was that just a name?
I think parts of The Dead Zone take place in NH.
And Irving's Hotel New Hampshire does offer a bit of New Hampshire flavor.
Thanks Bo Peep for filling me in; I didn't read it. When I was given an advanced reader's copy I gave it to my mom to read (She was probably 82 at the time); she thought it was okay. She gave her copy to my Aunt who lives just off the beach still. I believe Ms. Shreve's publicist told me she summered there.
Wasn't there a murder mystery set on the MS Mount Washington? I've been looking for some time for it but can't seem to find it.
