Nancy Taylor Robson
Nancy Taylor Robson grew up sailing and building boats with her father, married a tugboat captain, (who she's still happily married to) and embarked on a life of adventure, challenge and fun. Her first book, Woman in the Wheelhouse, told the sometimes harrowing story of working on an old coastal tugboat as cook/deckhand. She earned a tug operator's license and worked in Mexico in the Campeche oil fields on a supply boat.
Her second, Course of the Waterman, the coming of age novel of a young Eastern Shore waterman, won the Fred Bonnie award in 2004. Her third book, second novel, A Love Like No Other: Abigail and John Adams, A Modern Love Story, takes readers into the lives of the new nation's strong-willed second First Lady and her stubborn, often-absent and adored husband, John, our second US President. Robson wrote the book because she had spent big chunks of time raising children alone while her husband was at sea. Her fourth, OK Now What? A Caregiver's Guide to What Matters (Head to Wind Publishing, 2014) was written with hospice nurse, Sue Collins, RN. Purposely succinct, packed with practical information, lists sources, and most importantly, the stories of others who've been there, it's a manuel for non-professional caregiver. One reader described it as like having a non-judgmental friend hold your hand throughout the experience of walking someone you love 'home.'

A Love Like No Other: Abigail and John Adams, A Modern Love Story
by Nancy Taylor Robson
Passion, heartbreak, tragedy, and triumph. Abigail Adams, a woman of uncommon courage and determination, refused to settle for a common marriage. She wanted equal partnership and got it, along with all the struggles it brought. She survived war, the death of several of her children, and years-long separation from her beloved John, but lived to become the second First Lady in our nation.
