Description
It's been five years since the Mason family vacationed at the lakeside cottage in northeastern Vermont, close to where prize-winning novelist Samuel Mason grew up. The summers that Sam, his wife, Mena, and their twins Franny and Finn spent at Lake Gormlaith were noisy, chaotic, and nearly perfect. But since Franny's death, the Masons have been flailing, one step away from falling apart. Lake Gormlaith is Sam's last, best hope of rescuing his son from a destructive path and salvaging what's left of his family. As Sam struggles with grief, writer's block, and a looming deadline, Mena tries to repair the marital bond she once thought was unbreakable. But even in this secluded place, the unexpected--in the form of an over-zealous fan, a surprising friendship, and a second chance--can change everything. From the acclaimed author of Two Rivers comes a compelling and beautifully told story of hope, family, and above all, hunger--for food, sex, love and success--and for a way back to wholeness when a part of oneself has been lost forever. Praise For T. Greenwood's Two Rivers "A dark and lovely elegy, filled with heartbreak that turns itself into hope and forgiveness. I felt so moved by this luminous novel." --Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author "T. Greenwood's writing shimmers and sings. . ." --Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Belong to Me and Love Walked In "A memorable, powerful work." --Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain "Greenwood is a writer of subtle strength, evoking small-town life beautifully while spreading out the map of Harper's life, finding light in the darkest of stories." --Publishers Weekly "A sensitive and suspenseful portrayal of family and the ties that bind." --Lee Martin, author of The Bright Forever and River of Heaven "A haunting story. . .Ripe with surprising twists and heartbreakingly real characters. . .remarkable and complex." --Michelle Richmond, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Fog and No One You Know "A complex tale of guilt, remorse, revenge, and forgiveness. . . Convincing. . . Interesting. . ." --Library Journal "Two Rivers is the story that people want to read: the one they have never read before." --Howard Frank Mosher, author of Walking to Gatlinburg
