    " An enjoyable little piece of American lit, this was a slow, quiet read about quirky people in a quiet Maine coastal town. It did give you an excellent sense of place, and made me want to spend a summer doing nothing but wandering hillsides, growing a garden, and sailing around the bay. It didn't have much of a plot, and everyone was so isolated from their neighbors, friends, and family. Best of friends would only see each other once every two or three years. Although now that I think about it, some of my closest friendships are that way too. "

    " Charming classic from Sarah Orne Jewett about a seaport on the Maine coast, circa 1890, with unrelated vignettes about various characters who speak in the local New England vernacular. Makes me want to visit Maine. "

    " Still reading this, enjoying it very much. I actually can't wait to pass it on to a couple of other people. It kind of reminds me of Dante's inferno, but instead of Virgil, there is Mrs. Todd. And instead of flames there are tall cool spruce beers. Quite lovely. "

    " This book was read for a book club.. If it hadn't been for that I would not have bothered to finish it. "
