About the Author:

Jeffrey Lent's first novel, In the Fall, was a national bestseller. His other novels are Lost Nation, A Peculiar Grace, After You've Gone, and A Slant of Light, which was a finalist for the New England Book Award and a Washington Post Best Book of 2015. He lives with his wife and two daughters in central Vermont.

From AudioFile:

There is such a thing as too much introspection, but a perceptive reading by Todd McClaren keeps this sensitive novel from wallowing in pain and self-pity. Hewitt Pearce, the protagonist of Lents third compelling investigation into relationships and family, broods over a love lost nearly twenty years earlier. A chance occurrence, meeting Jessica, a young woman traveling around in an old VW, gives him the opportunity to redeem himself, help another, and find inner peace. Lent makes blacksmithing, baling hay, and smoking marijuana as much a part of Vermont as maple syrup, and McLarens narration heightens the sexual tension between Jessica and Hewitt. The writing feels overwrought at times, but McClarens down-to-earth performance makes this worthwhile listening. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
