She mentioned the burial almost as if in passing. She said it was shortly after WWI. Must have been, she said, for she herself was still a child. The family had crossed a snowy field to a country churchyard, hidden in the forest of Sweden. As Anna's brother lowered the small coffin into the frozen ground, Anna clenched her fists, her knuckles white from the cold. A man, dressed in black, watched from the pasture below, a wreath on his arm. Only after the family left, did he approach the grave.

Some secrets we take with us to the grave. Girard, the narrator of The Green House, even tries to hide them from himself, a strategy that proves much more dangerous than the truth. The Green House is a mystery, and as such it works wonderfully well, ...more
