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.
