Saga Egmont

  • In the late 1800s, best friends Helen Denis and Kate Lancaster spend a summer in the little seaside village of Deephaven, getting to know its residents. Her much acclaimed powers of description at their peak, Sarah Orne Jewett's classic "Deephaven" is a slow-paced gem, where everyday events become remarkable. The quirky people of the small community come alive in all their specificity through Jewett's characterization, and are guaranteed to stay with the reader for a long time after the book is over.
