Reviews
"Taken together, the pieces strike a nice emotional balance . . . These intimate reflections hit the spot."
--Publishers Weekly

"The writing displays more local color than a steamed lobster wearing wild blueberry bracelets, along with a mess of wistful nostalgia for any reader raised in Maine or New England in general."
--Portland Press Herald
