Om forfatteren

Theodora Sarah Orne Jewett was born in South Berwick, Maine on September 3, 1849. Unable to attend school because of arthritis, she learned about coastal life in New England as she accompanied her father, a doctor, on his rounds. He encouraged both her reading and her writing. When she began vis mere submitting fiction in 1867, using the pseudonyms A. D. Eliot, Alice Eliot, and Sarah C. Sweet, her chosen topic was often the life and people of her native, rural Maine. Her first published story appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in 1869 and her first short story collection, Deephaven, was published in 1877. Her first novel, A Country Doctor was published in 1884. Her other works include A Marsh Island (1885), A White Heron and Other Stories (1886), A Native of Winby (1893), Tales of New England (1894) and The Country of the Pointed Firs (1896). She stopped writing in 1902, after a fall left her with severe head injuries. She died of a cerebral hemorrhage on June 24, 1909. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

This is one of my favorite books of all time. I will always use it as an example of 'right place and right time'. If I'd read this book in my 20s I doubt I would have appreciated it as much as I did in my 40s.

Schon ein Weilchen wartete das Buch bei mir um gelesen zu werden. Die Originalausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1877 und einige Kapitel erschienen zuvor bereits im Atlantic Monthly.
Die Freundinnen Helen und Kate wollen einen Sommer das Haus von Kates verstorbener Großtante im Küstenstädtchen Deephaven in Neuengland hüten. Sie versuchen den Ort und seine Bewohner kennenzulernen und hören sich die Geschichten an. Viele Jahre später erinnert sich Helen und erzählt rückblickend von diesem Sommer.
Es ist eine ruhige, gar gemütliche Geschichte, die uns in unserer schnelllebigen Zeit vielleicht recht langweilig vorkommt.
Die Autorin Sarah Orne Jewett hat Menschen mit einem liebevollen Blick genau beobachtet. Durch die Augen der Freundinnen lernen wir die Bewohner von Deephaven so nach und nach kennen. Es sind sehr unterschiedliche Menschen, die ihre Eigenarten haben. Alle verbindet allerdings ihre Beziehung zum Meer. Dabei geht es auch nicht allen gut. Es ist halt auch in Deephaven so wie in unendlich vielen anderen Orten auch. Es gibt Sonnenseiten, aber auch Schatten.
Helen und Kate stammen aus gutem Hause, sie sind offen und kontaktfreudig. Dennoch wurde ich mit ihnen nicht wirklich warm. Umso mehr gefielen mir die Bewohner von Deephaven.
Man muss sich auf dieses Buch einlassen können, um es zu genießen. Auch wenn nicht viel passiert ist, das für Spannung gesorgt hätte, so hat mir das Buch doch gefallen.

The prose is elegant and it does have one truly beautiful line near the very end of the book that touched me. The description is all very good.

I found this book extremely boring. I could almost tell no difference in my comprehension and enjoyment between when I was falling asleep while reading and when I was wide awake while reading, and I can assure you that this book will make you fall asleep. Not much happens.

There are some very deep messages, if you can sift through the overlong prose, about loneliness, disconnect, communication, gossip, and mourning. These are nice, but the book still feels bloated.

I would not recommend this to anyone. If you have to read it for a class, as I did, prepare for a long haul.
