The four Dunnett Landing stories are "A Dunnett Shepherdess," "The Foreigner," "The Queen's Twin," and "William's Wedding"; the four additional tales are "A White Heron," "Miss Tempy's Watchers," "Martha's Lady," and "Aunt Cynthy Dallett." Here in the fictional town of Dunnett's Landing on the coast of Maine, Sarah Orne Jewett introduces peoplenow mostly women, as many of the town's men have been lost at sea or moved away in this era of whaling's declinewho have lived next to the sea for generations and seem to share its strength, silence and mystery.
