Amanda Melby in “Almost, Maine”

AMANDA MELBY IN “ALMOST, MAINE”
It’s Love. But Not Quite…
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – in fact it almost doesn’t exist because Almost’s residents never got around to getting organized.
        One cold, clear Friday night, in the middle of winter, while the northern lights glow above, the towns people find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Love is lost, found and confounded… and life for the people of Almost will never be the same.
