You can read this in an afternoon...it is very well written and takes you right to the dry summer Wisconsin town and into the mind of the narrator Jacob. The cover of the book should give you hint...it is not a pretty story. Fire, diphtheria, death, suicide, a hermit, quarantine, etc...a lot to think about. Jacob is the town sheriff, pastor, and undertaker so he has his hands full! Not for the fainthearted...but very well done and one of the best.
