Arthur Parkinson is fourteen during the dreary winter of 1974, experiencing the confusing pangs of adolescence and the pain of his parents' divorce. His world is shattered further by the sudden and violent death of Annie Marchand, his beloved former baby-sitter. Narrated by the adult Arthur, who continues to be haunted by memories, the story of a young man's unraveling family and the circumstances leading up to Annie's death forms the backdrop for an intimate tale of the price of love and belonging, told in a spare, translucent, and unexpectedly tender voice.

A concise yet detailed narrative tying together a series of small town tragedies over a single cold winter. The author deliveries a poignant story of humans living their lives with all their foibles and dreams. Excellent characterizations with a well crafted plot makes this novel well worth reading if you are interested.
