Anyone else a fan of Ruth Moore?

I read SPOONHANDLE years ago and loved it. It's about a Maine coastal community and outsiders buying up the land and "developing" the area.

http://www.amazon.com/Spoonhandle-Ruth-Moore/dp/0942396...

Ive also read SECOND GROWTH, which was good but not as good as SPOONHANDLE.

2. See, now I missed this when you originally posted it.
And since then you recommended it in my happy, uplifting fiction thread and I have read it and loved it. The interesting thing, tho, is that you posted this one on my birthday. LOL :hi:

3. Update: I just went on-line to the library
and requested four more of her books. I went ahead and requested that many because they are ALL in storage! Thought I would make it worth it for them to make the search. Second Growth is totally missing from the catalog, tho.

5. I just got the notice that they are
ready to be picked up. I have to finish Let the Great World Spin first because it has a waiting list.

I'll be interested to see what condition these books are in from storage. :hi:
