The Country of the Pointed Firs - Sarah Orne Jewett

This was really surprisingly lovely, and the second to last chapter made me cry on the Tube! It's a series of vignettes, which have a bit of a narrative but not really, about Jewett's summer living in a fishing village in coastal Maine with a herbalist/apothecary landlady. The point is basically that people are odd and wonderful. This sounds really boring but it is not boring.
