This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. When you lose a child, you become someone you don’t want to be, and you have to be that person for the rest of your life . . . I am a person I never wanted to be. A person who has lost a child. Sorrow is David Caldwell's daily compan­ion. Seven years ago, his thirteen-year-old son, Todd, killed his baby brother in an incident that was never fully ex­plained, never quite forgiven. David hasn't seen Todd since he was released from juve­nile prison two years ago. Now David wants to bring what's left of his family together again. He arranges to meet Todd while on a temporary assignment as sheriff of Columbia Beach, the fading resort town where the fam­ily used to vacation. But Columbia Beach has troubles of its own. Cecil Edwards, a giant of a man, holds the town in his bullying grip. And a mysterious young woman, Lindsey Hunter, is quietly slipping into Cecil's life and raising the town's suspicions. During the chilly months of the off-season, these four lives will intersect in ways both tender and violent. Old wounds will be ex­posed, broken hearts will be mended, and a new family bond will be created. With the intensity of a Shakespearean tragedy, Robert Bausch draws on the heart­break of loss and the power of redemption like no other writer. “This novel blew my mind and tore open my heart. A brilliant exploration of human darkness, delusion, and desire for redemption.” —Beth Henley, author of Crimes of the Heart
