Publisher Comments:

In 1896, at the age of forty-seven, Sarah Orne Jewett published her finest work, The Country of the Pointed Firs, about a woman writer who comes one summer to Dunnet Landing, a Maine seacoast town, to find seclusion for her work. Returning again and again to New England, Jewett traces the patterns of life of the lonely inhabitants of once-prosperous coastal towns. Fittingly, her best novel gives us a detailed view of the residents of fictional Dunnet Landing, where lives are molded by the long Maine winters, by the surrounding rock-filled fields, and by strong, resourceful women.

Synopsis:
