An enjoyable light novel about a sort of found-family in small-town Michigan. Warm, witty, charming. ( )

If you're looking for a book to lift your spirits during a time when you may have lost all hope for any kind of goodness from the human beings who inhabit this country, then I may have a book for you.

I'm not usually one to enjoy books that bring to mind words like heartwarming, or cosy but this one really hit the spot. (Groan) Jane and Duncan have an on again, off again romance in their small Northern Michigan town, but things change after a tragic car accident that impacts them both in different ways. The people in this town really take care of each other and I was struck by the kindness shown, especially by Jane and Duncan. More than one character has mental health issues but it doesn't really get in the way of living their best lives.

Really delightful. ( )

This is one of those books about simple warm Midwestern people who live lives where not much most people think worth talking about happens. These are good people, with little quirks we are supposed to find dear (I think.) I generally don't like these reading these books, even the ones I think are generally well written. The Lager Queen of Minnesota comes to mind. It is a book I felt bad about not liking, but I abandoned it fairly early on. I am not sure why this is one I finished and generally liked. It was certainly well written. Heiny allowed these characters to settle into its boringness in a way I liked. She didn't make its main characters painfully quirky to add interest (though she did with its secondary characters.) I think that made the difference.

This book is an homage to a very specific life and place, and both fortunately and unfortunately its a life to which I have lived adjacent, and which many people I know, and some people I love, still live. In part stories about this life don't work for me because I know the source material too well, but mostly I don't like the stories because this existence never felt natural to me and that was bad. It made me defective and I tried to hide it and I was so very unhappy. Because I had to act the contentment others felt I had to be more aware of its components and manifestations than the people who actually are content and really are living those lives. I consider myself an expert of sorts, and I think Heiny got it right. She does seem to have fully and lovingly embraced this part of Americana (though notably she did not opt to live this life but is rather living in very not sleepy and simple Bethesda, MD.)

Heiny tells a lovely little story, set in Northern Michigan (a place I do love but would never actually want to live.) Boyne Mountain was the site of my first hot tub kiss (I was 13) and of my first time hiding a goatskin filled with hot chocolate spiked with peppermint schnapps under my jacket while we skied (consumed roughly three hours before the hot tub kissing.) The characters hang out in Charlevoix and Petoskey and other places that make me smile when I type. This is a real plus for me. If people want to know what Middle America is holding onto it is this. These little communities where everyone knows each other's business, and everyone ends up part of these makeshift families filed with people with no or minimal actual blood ties and whom they don't much like. Their lives and world views are small, which does not mean they are stupid in the least (this is another thing people get wrong.) In this life there is no yearning for the pleasures of the city, for multiculturalism, 21st century music, fashion, authentic Uyghur food, travel, or trade deals. People just want to lead their lives the way they want to lead them and raise their kids who go to schools filled with a few great teachers and a lot more waiting for retirement and Hooters VIP status (this is a direct reference to the book, but also real life.) Just because I personally hated living this life doesn't make it a bad one at all, and I was gratified to see someone create a lovely well crafted portrait of small. rural, remote Midwestern life. Some of my best friends live that life, and I truly wish it suited me better because there is a lot to recommend it. ( )
