    Betsy’s new book

    Betsy Wing has written a new book.

    Betsy lives in East Boothbay, near the end of a long road that ends in the woods, just back from the edge of Linekin Bay. A perfect place to write.

    “Now History” is the second book she has written, but Betsy has translated many French titles for English publication. She's an artist, too.

    ‘In the Morrow’

    As the sun fades to black

    So does the summer fade from green to fall

    As the time marches to its temporal tune
