Grieving and wounded, Annie retreats to her old
family home in Switchback, Vermont, a maple farm generations
old. There, surrounded by her free-spirited brother, their
divorced mother, and four young nieces and nephews, Annie
slowly emerges into a world she left behind years ago: the
town where she grew up, the people she knew before, the

Annie unearths an age-old mystery that might prove the

joys unrealized and opportunities regained. Complex,

novel to cherish and to remember.
