The New Hampshire of white houses, village greens and gruff good neighbors that Robert Frost memorialized makes no more than a token appearance in "Women of Granite." Dana Andrew Jennings' second novel is set in places that tourists never see: on the overgrown logging tracks that form a kind of secret backwoods freeway system; in the bramble-choked swamps where copperhead snakes make a last lurking stand against extinction.

Students borrowing money for college today are much likelier to default than people who took out loans just a few years ago, according to a new report. The student-loan delinquency rate in the last three years has risen to 15.1%, up from 12.4% from 2005 to 2007, according to FICO Labs, a unit of Fair Isaac Corp., which publishes consumer credit scores. That's a nearly 22% increase. The report is the latest red flag signaling that monstrous debt is a problem not only for students but potentially for the broader economy as well.
