about

A rich collection of classic American literature potraying the beauty of a 19th-century New England town.

A female writer comes one summer to Dunnet Landing, a Maine seacoast town, where she follows the lonely inhabitants of once-prosperous coastal communities. Here, lives are molded by the long Maine winters, rock-filled fields and strong resourceful women.

Throughout Sarah Orne Jewett’s novel and stories, these quiet tales of a simpler American life capture the inspirational in the everyday: the importance of honest friendships, the value of family, and the gift of community.

“Their counterparts are in every village in the world, thank heaven, and the gift to one’s life is only in its discernment.” 
Sarah Orne Jewett (1849–1909) was the daughter of a physician in Berwick, Maine. Her books include Deephaven, The Country of the Pointed Firs, and nine volumes of short stories.
