(4.8 stars; 39 reviews)

The final story featuring the inhabitants of the growing township of Innisfield: Mrs Philura Pettibone’s story reaches its long-awaited conclusion and Miss Malvina’s life is changed forever by the arrival of various ”fur’ners”. Published in 1917, with America’s entry into the war in Europe imminent, the story dwells on friendships, the melting- pot of nationalities that make up the USA, and the personal struggle between pacifism and patriotism in wartime. While the writing keeps its gently ironic style for most of the time, it also features more serious and sometimes rather melodramatic themes. - Summary by Anne Fletcher

Reviews

Pretty good


(4.5 stars)

I am sorry this appears to be the final entry in this series; there should be so much more written about the people in this town. I feel as though I am reluctantly leaving friends and neighbors to an unknown fate. Having grown up in a small New England town myself, these people, their attitudes, and their surroundings are quite familiar to me. I would have preferred to have seen a lot more of Philura in this last book, but the encounters we did have with her were good ones. Well read by the Librivox volunteer.

it's like Seinfeld :-) circa 1900

Anne Fletcher is a marvelous reader. I’d listen to anything she read. Sadly, This final book in the series wasn’t nearly as interesting and sweet as the first three.

Good book
