Lakefront Living – Book Review: “A View of The Lake”

A View of the Lake: Living the Dream on Lake Superior
by Beryl Singleton Bissell

 Beryl Singleton Bissell, nationally renowned author of The Scent of God, shares her experience of life on Minnesota’s Lake Superior North Shore in this collection of essays that follows her journey to find her place in a small northern town.

These tales of the singular joys and challenges of moving from a city to a rural area will resonate with anyone who dreams of downsizing, picking up and moving to a life alongside a lake and its denizens. Each chapter captures the nature of the North Shore and the ways in which everything and everyone is shaped by the Big Lake.

Fans of her first book will feel right at home with the warm, insightful prose that has made Bissell so successful. For residents or frequent visitors, and hopeful travelers who have yet to experience its charms, A View of the Lake is a direct route to the North Shore. Softcover. 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, 176 pages.
