To read Sarah Orne Jewett is to peep into the windows of rose-trellised cottages. To be sure, the world of Jewett's nineteenth-century coastal Maine village is a small one. But that world is not her measure. Deserts are not as vast nor oceans as deep as the hearts we encounter in these four stories. With its rich Maine dialect, Tana Hicken's reading allows us more than a peep in the window. Indeed, we're invited in, seated at the table and entertained amiably by the fine talk. What a wonderful introduction to Maine writing! P.E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 95]
