So, looking back over your reading for this year, was any of your best reads set in New England or written by New England authors?

The only NE-related book to make my top 12 is Tinkers by Paul Harding. A small novella, lyrical and moving.

Three other noteworthy NE-related reads this year were:
A Peculiar Grace by Jeffrey Lent (Vermont, novel)
Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell (Colonial Massachusetts, nonfiction/humor).

and a dissertation I read:
A Good Master Well-Served: A Social History of Servitude in Massachusetts 1620-1750 by Lawrence Towner.

I'd have to include The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent. Excellent fictional account with research into the Salem trials.
