GREENWICH, Conn. --- A fictional island off Greenwich serves as the backdrop to "Peregrine Island," a new book by Westchester native Diane Saxton .

The novel tells the story of three generations of women who have inherited a painting that they believe was painted by famed artist Simon Crandor. Winter Peregrine, who lives on a private island on the Long Island Sound with her fickle daughter, Elsie, and her tenderhearted granddaughter, Peda, have their quiet lives turned upside down when two art “experts” show up to appraise their beloved family heirloom.

Said the author, a Chappaqua native who splits her time between the Berkshires and Manhattan, said: "What you see, or think you see on Peregrine Island, is seldom what it seems."

Saxton will be signing books at Elm Street Books in New Canaan on Saturday, Aug. 27, from noon to 2:30 pm.
