Author(s): Steven Herrick
Jack and Annabel have decided to put off university and drive around the country. It all seems wildly romantic, but when their car dies two days into the trip, they end up at George's apple orchard. They figure it's a temporary pit stop--and at first it is. But when Jack recognizes a familiar suffering in George's family, he and Annabel decide to stay for a while. They're not sure how to help, but they know they want to try... This companion to Love, Ghosts, & Facial Hair captures the difficult search for identity in an isolated place.
