This is a story about a man named Harper Montgomery who loses his love and the center of his world, his very being, in a matter of a few minutes. After Betsy's death, Harper is a broken man. He has been left with a baby daughter, that was born the night Betsy died,and the haunting memories a man with "skin the color of late summer blackberries" begging for his life. The story is set during the years of the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam war. Few people are unaffected from the violence and incidences of that time. When a 15 year old girl with "skin the color of late summer blackberries" strangely comes into Harper's life 12 years later, the bare threads of his life start to unravel and new fears and unknowns take over. Harper sees life and loss and redemption and rebirth through with different lenses.

T. Greenwood describes Harper's life with a vivid sensualness that you can almost touch. You can smell the river and the trees, experience the seasons and feel the yearnings of the characters. Greenwood tells this story with sensitivity and insight into the human soul. Love and loss are part of our lives but so are redemption and rebirth if we are willing to look through different lenses.
