Touch by Alexi Zentner

"A breathtaking debut . . . filled with ghosts and demons who lurk in the Canadian north woods." —Andrew Abrahams, People
On the eve of his mother’s death, Stephen comes home to Sawgamet, a logging town where the dangers of working in the cuts are overshadowed by the dark mysteries and magic lurking in the woods. Thirty years after the mythical summer his grandfather returned to town on a quixotic search for his dead wife, Stephen confronts the painful losses in his own life.

Stephen Boucher, the soon to be pastor of a church inn Sawgamet, has come home to this town to be with his mother as she passes into the next life. During his last night with her he remembers the events that have shattered his life, and the lives of those who live and work in this north woods town. As the night progresses Stephen introduces us to three generations of the Boucher family. His grandfather, Jeannot, came here to find his fortune in gold, but found love instead. His father who abandoned by Jeannot as a baby, strives to be everything to his children that his father was not, and loses everything in the process. This is a story of freezing cold, staggering heat, bitter truths, creatures from imaginations brought to life, and a love that will not be broken by death. Beyond that it's a beautiful book that dares you to try to put it down.
