Tucked into reputedly haunted woods stretching to the horizon, the quaint, small-town ennui of Moon Hill, Maine is shaken by a concurrence of troubling events: a horrific crime, several missing people, and the arrival of a mysterious lone toddler. A years-long manhunt uncovers more than a dangerous killer; an intimate portrait of all involved reaches far beyond town lines, and ventures into secrets too vital to reveal.


Told in two parts--two books in one volume--Kirsten Reed’s second novel takes a hard, tender look at present day rural Maine, and reaches into New England’s past, exploring grief, addiction, personal, cultural, and sexual identity, feminism, and family ties in a well-paced character-driven ride.
