A friend gave Field Notes as a birthday gift and received this email of gratitude:

Sara Jewell’s book arrived on the 17th and I can’t put it down. Many thanks for sending a thoughtful piece of Nova Scotia to read. I am fascinated by other people’s stories about what drew them to this province and what compels them to stay. The water, hills and sky seem to cast magic on many of us and claim parts of our hearts.

Sara’s sub-title about searching for heart and home in rural Nova Scotia is all we’re ever looking for, particularly if we’ve had a lifetime of summers to allow the salt water, air, trees and gravel roads seep into our souls. There’s no other place in the world like this little province!
Love the book, thank you.”
