This book is a lovely, thoughtful, feel-good read. For those sophisticated/snobby readers (like me), don't be alarmed by the romance novel edition's cover.

Second book of the Jennie trilogy by Ogilvie. This has some of the "Little House" elements because we see Jennie and Alick learning about the American town in Maine which will become their new home, as well as the people and life there naturally. There is a continuation of the romance the readers have seen building but which Jennie is oblivious to. And a mystery of sorts which is all sorted out by the end. Enjoyable.

Elisabeth Ogilvie’s striking evocation of the atmosphere of the Maine seacoast that is the background of The Seasons Hereafter is no accident, for she lived in just such an area for many years, and her love for its people and their way of life has influenced all her novels.
Her activities on Gay’s Island, where she spent most of the year, included writing, gardening, and “trying not to suspect that
