This is the Jewett home in South Berwick, Maine. Sarah lived here all her life, as she never married. She wrote her books and her short stories from the room at the top left of the house. A wonderful local color writer, Jewett is an inspiration to me.
The home is about 20 minutes from my parents' and can be on the way south to Boston if we choose to avoid the Maine turnpike. In my case last Friday afternoon, it was on my way back to my sister's just north of Boston, where I spent the last two nights of Christmas break.
