Publisher's Summary

This superlative work by Sarah Orne Jewett, a late 19th century writer, shows great literary skill, artistry and charm. The Country of the Pointed Firs depicts the close personal and family relationships in a small New England village. In its appreciation of the natural beauty and restorative powers of a small community, it is similar to Thoreau's Walden.

Ahead of its time with an important social message, and written in the careful prose that marked 19th century literature, The Country of the Pointed Firs is an exciting and memorable narrative creation.

Unexpected Delight !

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book was such a delight. The narrator was very good. She really caught the down home Maine atmosphere in her voice. The author has a knack for writing great descriptions with a minimum of words. You close your eyes and you are right there in the small village on the rocky Maine coast. No wonder its a classic.I liked it so much that I have suggested this book to my book group.
