THE MAYTREES by Anne Dillard

"The Maytrees" sat on my book pile for quite a while before I picked it up.  To my surprise, I found the book delightful.  Anne Dillard who won a pulitzer prize in the past writes beautiful poetry-like prose.  "The Maytrees" is a love story set on Cape Cod, beginning during World War II and continuing until present day.  Lou and Toby Maytree fall in love, have a child and have a community of friends who are mixture of summer people and long-standing citizens of Provencetown.  Without effort the reader falls into their life.  If you enjoy good writing, this is a good choice for you.
