The Inn at Lake Devine, by Elinor Lipman
“Set in the summer of 1962, this beguiling gem of a romantic comedy is about the relationship between Jews and Gentiles, a segregated inn in Vermont, and 12-year old Natalie Marx’s sense of justice during a turbulent time in America. Lipman is brilliant with dialogue and characters and can spin a provocative tale that still manages to feel punchy and light. One of my favorite novels of all-time.”
