Most Helpful Customer Reviews

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By From the Coast of Maine on November 9, 2005
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Short stories about life in Maine, both old-timers and those just visiting Maine (or from away). Well written and engaging. My favorites are, of course, those listed in the publishers' reviews as "other local writers"; Monica Wood, Cathie Pelletier, Lily King, Bill Roorbach, etc. Includes glimpses of Maine during the "other" ten months.
