VILLAGE TALE by John de Meyer


Email this review


Good entertainment, and thoroughly enjoyable for its smmplicity and salty humor. A Maine seacoast town, a minister's son who has been the village goat, but who comes alive when a New York woman writer rescues him from his innocuous desuetude and launches him on writing a book about his own home town. It's his way of hitting back -- and he finds his metal tested by the town's reaction to the book. It makes a man of him, however, and he finds the courage to go back and face it out. Appealing anecdotes of Maine village life, a homespun and nice piece of story telling.
