The Pearl of Orr's Island
Orr's Island, located on the coast of Maine in the town of Harpswell, is the setting for Harriet Beecher Stowe's heart-warming fictional account of the people who lived there. Stowe based her thrifty, honest, practical, and God-fearing characters on real Mainers she knew while she and her husband, who was a teacher at Bowdoin College, lived in Brunswick, Maine. She also wrote her most famous book, Uncle Tom's Cabin, in their Brunswick home.
