Corbyn Thurber, seventeen, meets the love of his life while passing through the small town of Wakefield—he just doesn’t know it at the time.
He returns years later in search of the woman he never forgot only to discover she has a dark secret. And tracking her down under the watch of judgmental locals is only half as antagonizing as his sense of self-doubt.
Told from the perspective of a man haunted by regret, this short story, from the author of 'Fender' and 'The Fifteenth of June', masterfully considers the consequences of a life unexplored.
