Character, plot, and setting all earn rave reviews from me in this book, which begins just before the 1947 fire that demolished many towns in Maine, including the one in which the main character, Grace Holland lives. The description is brilliant of the unease, concern, and terror experienced by town’s people as the fire grew . The plot contains real life issues and the characters are complex . I read this one late into the night, because I loved it.
