A novel that reads like history- good histsory, the kind of tale you can't put down. Clare Adkin captures the feel of Michigan during the Great Depression in an intermingled tale oflove and courtroom drama.


A year out of high school and still working in his family’s apple orchard, Chuck yearns for a life of adventure. Suddenly, as if in answer to his prayers, he is offered the job of reporting on a high profile murder case. He works tirelessly to do the ‘best job’ possible in this, his first ‘real’ assignment but finds it is hard to get people to talk about what they know. What he uncovers will lead him to a new understanding of his Michigan community, his family and the devastation of secrets.
