Editorial Reviews


"Burch's exquisite descriptions of Provincetown bring the cape to life, and the more he reveals about the delightfully crotchety Dorrie and Lola and the effervescent, tragic Helena, the more captivating they become."
Kirkus Reviews
"This is a literary work of exceptional merit. It is epic in nature, yet intensely intimate in execution, gorgeously rendered in exquisite detail, and told with heartfelt honesty. It bears a message of hope and love, compassion and tolerance, of simple joys and overcoming the roadblocks life sometimes thrusts in your path.... I loved The HomePort Journals, unreservedly, and give it my highest recommendation."

From the Author

Described as a "love letter to Provincetown," The HomePort Journals is the story of a family created from friendship and shared experience. Marc Nugent's journey of self-exploration takes him to HomePort, an old whaling-family mansion where time stands still. Lola Staunton has been a recluse much of her life, hiding from gossip and innuendo that her father killed the family cook. Dorrie Machado, the cook's daughter, was Lola's best friend in childhood. Now, the two women have barely spoken in 60 years. Helena Handbasket, the cross-dressing housekeeper who channels Mrs. Danvers, tends to Lola and quickly falls for Marc. Enter Cole Hanson, a handsome artist with a mysterious past. Marc, Helena, and Cole team up to solve the mystery of the cook's murder and in doing so, Marc and Cole are drawn to each other. A story of male love, love between ages, and love of self, The HomePort Journals explores the many ways that the past can shape the present.
Though set at the tip of Cape Cod, this story of love, loss, and relationships has a universal message: sometimes the family we create for ourselves can make all the difference. I wrote this book out of gratitude for my now thirty years in Provincetown, but also for the many people, gay, straight, bisexual, and transgender, who have become my family over the years.
