    "I didn't want this to end"

    This is a collection of short stories all focusing on various characters in Moshers fictional VT northeast kingdom "Kingdom County " towns and families covered also in his many other books. The novella especially is wonderful focusing on two people caught in the historical transition in the late 1920s and 1930s from a preindustrial way of life to modernity even in the outer rural corners of the US. IF you, like me, are interested in the ruralway of life in the cold northeast of VT before electricity, passable roads in winter, etc. and the characters who lived it and loved living it, you will live this story. I was very impressed with how the narrator did the accents. I'm not an expert but I've spent enough time in VT they sounded close to authentic to me. I've actually never read or heard a book or story by Mosher where I didn't end up loving the characters and not wanting it to end. He's a master storyteller. I wish more of his books were audiobooks!
