Jewett, Sarah Orne: A White Heron and Other Stories. v1. 23 Nov 2021

A captivating collection of local color and characters in Maine. The title story is commonly regarded as Jewett’s finest single tale.

“There’s something magical about this book of short stories. It’s not a fancy, high-flying magic, nor a showy, complex magic. It’s a simpler magic — of things that are so normal and everyday, but that we have so swiftly forgotten, that it almost cannot be called magic at all. These stories were written, after all, [in the late 1880’s]. But that’s what makes them so easy to fall in love with: they’re of a time we’ve stepped away from, certainly, and there are very few occasions where any of us are able to again set foot into an understanding of what it’s like to live in the world that Sarah Orne Jewett described in these little ditties.”
(—Goodreads review)

============
Theodora Sarah Orne Jewett (September 3, 1849 – June 24, 1909) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet, best known for her local color works set along or near the southern coast of Maine. Jewett is recognized as an important practitioner of American literary regionalism.
