My first read by T. Greenwood but will be going back for more. Having grown up in a small town in New England and in a similar environment as the main character, I was entranced by this story which bounces back and forth between then and now. Hauntingly beautiful descriptions of places and emotions. Left me in tears; melancholy, but also nostalgic. Very emotional reading for me. Loved it!
