Well, I finally finished Duma Key. Finishing a book is always bittersweet. It's like I'm saying goodbye to close friends. Does anyone know what island Duma Key is based off of? I'd love to visit there. Also, is there any relationship between Edgar Freemantle and Abigail Freemantle from The Stand?
Duma Key was inspired by Casey Key which is in the Sarasota area.

...I can't recall that being extrapolated on, but in Steve's world-it's probably not a coincidence....

Wonderful read. So many levels to that book. Lisey's Story is an incredible journey too.
