Hillsboro People is a compilation of short stories about the people of Hillsboro, a rural town in Vermont.
The stories are set in various time periods in Hillsboro, mainly the 1800s.

Each story is deeply human and engaging, focusing a particular Hillsboro person or incident. Dorothy Canfield Fisher writes in a style both straightforward and intelligent, and the tone is redemptive without being trite or syrupy.

I picked this up after reading Understood Betsy (as an adult) and didn't know what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise. If you enjoyed Understood Betsy you'll enjoy Hillsboro People; this is one of the best pieces of fiction I've read in a long time.
It saddens me that there are few authors writing fiction of this quality today. Please feel free to add your recommendations of similar authors and books in the comments.
