Last week I was on vacation in Maine, and so I decided I just had to read Maine: A Novel by J. Courtney Sullivan. I loved it! The book is about three generations of the Kelleher family and their ties to the family summer house in Cape Neddick, Maine. The is book is filled with intriguing characters from Alice the ornery matriarch, to Kathleen the eldest daughter who has found happiness with a hippy worm farmer in California, and Ann Marie the oh-so-perfect yuppie daughter in law whose hobby is decorating doll houses. You will in turn love and hate these characters. It is also fun to read about familiar locations and events--watching the fire works in Portsmouth or eating dockside in Kittery. There is still enough summer left for you to fit this book in.
