JOHN GOFFE'S MILL by George Woodbury
Kirkus Star


Email this review


A completely disarming account of what happens when an archaeologist and his wife out themselves off from Boston and Harvard and head for family property in the country, there to build a new life. The fact of there being a mill on the property and the unprecedented disaster of the hurricane impelled them not only to find it possible to eat from their land, but to make it pay its way. Their experiences in restoring the mill with local labor, in coping with a barn of a house, in achieving success in their various ventures will appeal to all who like original back to the frontier adventures, embellished with unforced humor and a sense of gaiety. The New Hampshire background provides a new setting in a market saturated with Maine.
