Freda at Freda's Voice is the lucky winner of Vacationland by Sarah Stonich, her new collection of connected short stories, all set at Naledi Lodge, a former lake resort in northern Minnesota.
Stonich is the author of two earlier books, both great reads, These Granite Islands and The Ice Chorus, which I reviewed here. Vacationland looks equally compelling.
If anything, she was even more vehement then he against the old people (people over thirty) who had made such a mess of affairs.

-- What's Bred in the Bone by Robertson Davies. This is a great yarn kind of book -- my favorite kind.
This is the second book in his "Cornish Trilogy," following The Rebel Angels. The trilogy concludes with The Lyre of Orpheus. The three books are separate stories but all related to the life and influence of Francis Cornish, an eccentric Canadian art collector. Or art forger? I am just getting to the good part!
