There Is A Woman From Nantucket
on April 19, 2017
Can't believe how well Elin Hilderbrand understands human nature and the world and the times in which we live. Her knowledge, understanding, education, et. al. is as deep as the deepest well. For somebody who lives on a small island, or for anybody for that matter, she has a world view and a universe of understanding and knowledge. For those of us from The Cape and Islands, she brings back a world and scenes from decades of our lives.
For those of us who grew up with Cumberland Farms, The Cape Cod Mall, the Ferries, Stop Shop, Cape Air, the Summer crowds, the non-moving traffic, the full and jammed parking lots, et. al., Hilderbrand writes in HD big time. If the current version is 4 HD then that is certainly where she is at now. She is unafraid of life and all its dilemmas. Most of us at any age or of any gender have been where her characters are. To paraphrase the old ABC Sports, it is the "human drama of. . .competition." The thrill of agony and the victory of defeat.
Hilderbrand has dug into Nantucket and human nature to beyond their very bedrock.
