In a small fictional town on the Oregon coast there are love affairs and almost-love-affairs, mystery and hilarity, bears and tears, brawls and boats, a garrulous logger and a silent doctor, rain and pain, Irish immigrants and Salish stories, mud and laughter. There's a Department of Public Works that gives haircuts and counts insects, a policeman addicted to Puccini, a philosophizing crow, beer and berries. An expedition is mounted, a crime committed, and there's an unbelievably huge picnic on the football field. Babies are born. A car is cut in half with a saw. A river confesses what it's thinking. . .

Early return... did not like.

Individual, lyrical writing style. Full of joy and sadness, poignant with hope over despair. A surprisingly true portrait of a place and a people, echoing in my own sense of place and home. highly recommended in audio - the reader was outstanding. re-listened to several sections.

I loved the accurate picture of the Oregon coast, vegetation, animals, and people combined with the magic of the story. Each character' story unfolds in parallel with the other characters. They all tie into such a warm and quirky community.
