Review: The Country of the Pointed Firs and Other Stories

User Review  - Marit - Goodreads

The writing is excellent - the New England Coast comes alive with rich characters! This is a gentle, loving storyteller - it's not a book for anyone who's in a hurry. Sarah Orne Jewett is one of our hidden gems - a great American writer. Read full review
