The Maytrees of Annie Dillard's novel are Lou and Toby Maytree. Toby is a poet in his local Provincetown on Cape Cod, mixing with other artists and intellectuals. He's 30 when he first meets Lou, and is immediately captivated by her. They marry and have a son, living in the house Lou inherited from her mother. It's a simple life bounded by friends, beauty, art, and the sea. Their friend Deary helps watch their son, and their idyllic life begins to fall apart with Toby realizes he's falling for Deary. The Maytrees has received positive reviews with USA Today saying, "The Maytrees has elegant, evocative language. It describes nature in a way that would enchant the most hardened city dweller. And it captures the mystery of love, maternal as well as romantic. This novel is a treasure."
