Book Review | Down from Cascom Mountain

Title: Down from Cascom Mountain: A Novel

Author: Ann Joslin Williams

My Review:

My family and I recently vacationed in the mountains and this was the perfect summer read to bring with me to our cabin retreat. I began reading it sitting and drinking a cup of morning coffee on the front porch nestled in the mountains and overlooking a cliff above the beautiful river. I finished reading it curled up by the fire because it was almost impossible to put down this engaging novel. Down From Cascom Mountain: A Novel gripped me with the emotional story and I appreciated the author’s ability to create characters that were thoroughly believable in their expressions of grief, loss, anger, hope and love. When my own family went hiking in the mountains that afternoon, I couldn’t stop thinking about the main character, Mary and her friends and was eager to keep reading this book. It was a fantastic summer read that was appealing in many ways from the lush descriptions of the beautiful mountain setting to the character development. I highly recommend this debut novel from author, Ann Joslin Williams.
