A recently divorced woman trudges out of one small, Maine town and into an even smaller one, hoping to escape her pain. Instead she finds herself surrounded by people who are trudging on, just like her. Waiting for things to get better. Waiting for spring.
RJ Keller takes readers beyond the lighthouses and rocky beaches tourists visit and drops them instead into a rural Maine town that is filled with displaced factory workers who struggle with poverty and loss, yet push onward with stubbornness and humor.
“A strong debut. Her voice is strong, her talent is evident. [...] This is the spring of Keller’s work, the beginning and now we can anticipate the full bloom of summer in her next work.”
