The Country Of The Pointed Firs

The Country of the Pointed Firs - Sarah Orne Jewett this is a wonderful little book set amongst sea folk. it made me think of poor mrs. unguentine, and i wondered if these were the friends she left behind because if they were, i now understand her dismay a little better. the narrator introduces us to her landlady, mrs. todd, her mother mrs. blackett and a host of other remarkable characters. it was all very folksy and warm, poignant, beautiful and sometimes sad.
