Ms. Towler's book is a piece of classical music—haunting, heartbreaking, resplendent. Her scenes are so clear, you can taste the pie, smell the air, and feel the summer sun on the back of your neck. Her characters are so alive they make you want to jump into the pages to help them.About the Author:
