Dahlias are a trendy flower, but with so many different varieties, colors, and shapes, it's easy to see how incredible they are. This book is an excellent guide to planting, growing, and harvesting dahlias, with beautiful photos to boot. If you're local and are interested in planting from tubers in the future, be sure to check out the family-owned and operated FiveFork Farms in Upton, MA.

This is a unique novel. In Popisho, every character has a magical element, or a "cors". Some people can flavor food or change paint colors with their hands, and others have extra body parts. Taking place over a few days, Popisho tells the story of an island community preparing for the wedding of the governor's daughter, and dealing with their own issues.

Wintering by Katherine May is a thoughtful and introspective book about how to weather the difficult times in your life (like a pandemic...) The important thing to remember is that wintering isn't a seasonal mood, it's a state of being that needs to be recognized and accepted at any time of the year.

Published: Ecco - November 10th, 2020

I loved this book! It's witty and sharp, and probably exactly what Maine would look like in an apocalypse. The main character, Journeyman, is a wayward soul who found himself in Maine at the time that all technology died. His life is interrupted when a person from his past arrives in a "supercar", and chaos ensues.

This is a ghost story of sorts, and a love story of sorts, but mostly a story about a girl who doesn't want to live a stifled life and makes a deal with the devil to live forever. A beautiful, modern story.
