Becoming Hanna

SKU: 21714


Becoming Hanna, My Greater Light on Nantucket sheds light on Beverly Hall's fascinating journey as she discovers and resurrects a very special Nantucket icon, Hanna Monaghan. At the Monaghan Sisters' home, Greater Light, Beverly can often be found greeting visitors in the garden. Her reenactment of Hanna's mannerisms, dress, and demeanor often make guests wonder if Hanna is present in the garden once more. 

If you cannot make it to witness this in person, you can bring the garden and Greater Light into your home. Through beautiful imagery, poems, and writings, this book sheds light on Beverly's creative path to channel this unique persona and keep Hanna as alive today as she once was in this iconic setting. 

A must for every Nantucket home, or home away from Nantucket!
