From the Publisher Immersive, heartbreaking and richly evocative of time and place, this long-awaited new novel marks the return of a great American storyteller, now in paperback ''We were exposed to these phenomena in order that we might learn something, but of course the lessons we learn are not always what was intended.'' So begins Matthew Garth''s stor of the fall of 1962, when the shooting of a young woman on Thanksgiving Day sets off a chain of unsettling evens in Willow Falls, Minnesota. Matthew first sees Louisa Lindahl in Dr. Dunbar''s home office, and at the time her bullet wound makes nearly as strong an impression as her unclothed body. Fueled over the following weeks by his feverish desire for this mysterious woman and a deep longing for the comfort and affluence that appears to surround the Dunbars,Matthew finds himself drawn into a vortex of greet, manipulation, and ultimately betrayal.
