Read full description of the books:
You know when you get completely absorbed into a book and perhaps a kind of life that you have no experience with becomes entirely familiar? Well, as a Florida girl who hasn't even been further up than Boston, I felt both at home and emotionally attached to this world of New Hampshire snow, hardcore camping, living in cabins, and making a life out in the woods. I could see every scene with perfect clarity and was left with that delightful mix of longing, peace, and curiosity about how these characters' lives would continue to unfold without me there watching.
I loved reading this book and as a personal side note worth mentioning, after hearing Anne talk about her difficulty dealing with one particular story "The Skater" and how several different endings and lots of rewrites occurred before this final printed version, I felt an almost perverse sense of relief having finally gotten to read it and discover just how the story should end. It was a very satisfying moment for me.
I also loved how the stories were all connected in such surprising ways and seeing them throughout different stages in their lives, how one story would help explain a decision made in another. really masterfully done. I kept waiting for a story about the dog and it never happened, which I think was also a great device. The rest I'll leave as a surprise to you.
