A debut novel set in 1980s Maine, beautifully written and thoroughly engrossing, tells a layered story of the far-reaching effects & events centered around a bankrupt paper mill that is set to reopen, but is instead burned to the ground in an act of arson.
Rich with local legends and Penobscot lore, filled with reverence for the natural world, this powerful story of fragile family loyalties and the desire to protect what you love features a vibrant cast of perfectly human characters that had me invested in each and every outcome. ~ Reviewed by Linda Then
