Westport Featured Prominently in New Novel Image
The action takes place in a Westport beach cottage. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
This week’s Publisher’s Weekly describes novelist Cathleen Schine’s latest book, “The Three Weissmanns of Westport,”  as “a little bit 21st-century homage to ‘Sense and Sensibility’and a little bit homecoming to her childhood town of Westport, Conn.”

Schine, a 1971 Staples High School graduate and one of the extended Schine family in Westport, was asked by interviewer Julie Naughton whether the Westport of her childhood influenced the story.

“The town has changed so much since I was growing up,” Schine replied. “My mother sold her house and kept the barn—all around it, these huge houses have gone up. The barn looks like the gardener’s shed now!

“As I was creating the cottage in Westport where Annie, Miranda, and Betty (characters in the book) would live, I was inspired by a house on the beach that my friend was living in.
