Clark's Turning Leaf by Nicholas Trandahl
Clark Grant, renowned Seattle writer of romantic poetry, has fallen into a literal and literary darkness. Depression, grim dark poetry, and a failed suicide attempt tarnish his recent past. In an effort to turn over a new leaf and make some much needed changes, Clark relocates to the rural Berkshires of western Massachusetts. In the forested hills of Massachusetts Clark relearns what it means to be a friend, a father, a lover, and a writer. But will new found peace be lost when he's again forced to face depression and suicide? Can recently-discovered goodness and light withstand guilt and loss?
