Walking Through Brambles covers a year-in-the-life of a self-proclaimed middle-aged, mainstream exile as he re-discovers himself and builds a new life in a small coastal town in southern Oregon.
Adam Moore reveals an environment that is bucolic and an ethos that is perplexing but warm as he learns his way around his new town, meets his neighbors, and copes with his fantasies around the mysterious woman who lived in his house before him.
As Adam seeks counsel from his cat and other inhabitants of Valencia, he invents histories of strangers while he recovers from a loneliness masked with insight and humor, finding peace at last.
