My mother's family was from Maine, and she told me of this book when I was a kid. My sister finally found it and bought me a copy. It's so sweet! It's stories about a simpler life in Maine. It's a nice escape from our modern reality! (my mother's favorite story was the one about the Queen's biggest fan)
