Down From Cascom Mountain

Down from Cascom Mountain: A Novel

By Ann Joslin Williams

Ann Joslin Williams does a wonderful job of portraying the beauty of the area in Down from Cascom Mountain. She displays a gift of description of both place and characters.
In fact, it is quirky cast of characters inhabit Cascom Mountain over the period of one summer in New Hampshire, in this entertaining novel.

Each character has their own story, and it is how they come together that make this novel what it is. What could be sorrow evolves into joy, but it is not easily won. It takes a community of quirky characters to accomplish this.

Ann Joslin Williams has written stories, but this is her first full novel. I expect there will be more.
