Oh my goodness!!
That's about all I can say about this book.
Our book club is reading Midwives or Double Bind for the March book and oh my goodness!
This is the story of Laurel, a young woman brutally attacked by two men while riding bike in Vermont. She graduates from college as a social worker and begins working at BEDS a homeless shelter/low rent housing facility in Burlington, Vermont, very close to the town of her attack. An older man, Bobbie, dies and in his things is a box of photographs of famous people, houses and a blurry young woman riding a bike on a road in Vermont.
So begins Laurel's quest to figure out who Bobbie was, why he ended up homeless and why in the world he had a picture of her...
I can't say more - because it is so fragily woven it would unravel in my retelling.
Suffice it to say I would strongly recommend this one. It's a typical Bohjalian - a little hard to read - a little wordy - a little plodding at parts - but so worth the end.
