I'm wondering if anyone else knows of any BOOKS that did something similar. Like the state almost becomes a character on its own. Or the plot has something to saw about Connecticut?
The Wings of the Morning
In the Fire of Spring
This an unfinished trilogy (Tryon died before he could finish it) about a thinly disguised Wethersfield ("Pequod Landing")...circa 1810 or so in first book and circa the Civil War in the second. I must admit I've never read them, and would probably be too frustrated about the fact that it is unfinished, and is apparently never going to be finished. However, I can pass on my wife's recommendation, she read and liked both.
I thoroughly detested Jennifer Weiner's Goodnight Nobody, which was also set (sort of, at one point she describes the CT river as basically running through Fairfield County.) in CT.
Oddly, can't think of anything else at the moment.

I'm gonna have to find a way to start asking people in town. Now how to go about that...
Let me just say how happy I am to see someone posting in here!
I've got a legit one. Connecticut is featured in a couple chapters of The Owl Papers.
Also, The Only Girl in the Car by Kathy Dobie takes place in Hamden CT. I know her brother, know the area so I kept trying to place all the places she was talking about!
Both memoirs about not particularly shining moments in their lives! The first was turned into a movie with Drew Barrymore.
I've covered, (hiked and birded) almost every inch of this State, but have never been there! I shall have to visit that CT Audubon site, soon.

Trailwood is so much sweeter if you have some knowledge of Edwin and Nellie's lives together.
