The Inn at Lake DevineE and return The Inn ePUB #8608 year after year are Gentiles For twelve year old Natalie who has a stubborn sense of justice the words are not a rebuff but an infuriating irresistible challenge In this beguiling novel Elinor Lipman charts her heroine's fixation with a small bastion of genteel anti Semitism a fi. Few novels manage to combine humor and sadness the way this one does It touches on anti Semitism without being heavy handed and brings a varied cast of characters to a new understanding of themselves and others Lipman has a uirky sense of humor and sets up a wonderful premise here in an interesting location You have to love a protagonist who learning that a resort on a New England lake doesn't accept Jewish guests sets out to expose the innkeepers in such an inventive way There's a romance at the center of this novel just enough off kilter that it kept my attention and my pages turning so uickly that I read this in a day It is set in Vermont and Massachusetts in the 60s and 70s yet it felt like my childhood growing up in the Catskills This was a wonderful coming of age book that was well written and funny with great dialog and characters who feel incredibly real This is probably my favorite Elinor Lipman bookuestion the dedication implies that this is based on a true story does anyone know if it is

This was a uick read and an enjoyable one When Natalie’s mother inuires about rentals at an inn on a New England lake she receives an icily polite response making it clear that as Jews they will not be comfortable at this resort Teenage Natalie fresh from her first reading of Anne Frank's diary becomes obsessed with the inn and its owner This part of the book is very funny and was better I thought than the second half The story jumps forward to Natalie's adult years as her relationship to the Inn plays out with a visit to a Kosher resort in the Catskills along the wayI spent my childhood summers at a place that was similar to the Inn at Lake Devine although far rustic and casual and have no trouble imagining the premise for this book And in fact it is than just plausible since the author’s own mother actually did receive such a letter
