bookshelves: new-england, historicalfiction, 20th-century
Read in April, 2009

A somewhat brutal but vivid depiction of life in rural Vermont in the early 20th century. Marie is orphaned at ten, not long after her parents leave Quebec for better economic opportunities in the only too suitably named Hell's Gate. There, she becomes entangled with the Benedict family, from the memorable "Captain" who established the town, to his handsome son Abie, whose interest in Marie turns inexplicably to hatred.
