Far far too much story for the amount of pages -- there's just no way to fit ghost story and townsfolkiness and deception and five years' growth and backstory and Indian wars and historical setup and child abuse and sexual manipulation, and I'm probably forgetting something, into 150 pages -- but the author does an admirable job of the love stor(ies), at least.

Or maybe I just have a Thing for mismatched relationships built on mutual admiration. & boys who finally come home.

one of my all time favorites. i read it every year in october
