The Cherry Pickers
by Gregory Randall
Gregory C. Randall weaves a tale of secrets in northern Michigan during that stormy summer of 1956. In Howie Smith’s world of primal forests, orderly orchards, and Lake Michigan; he learns about life and begins to understand death. A crazy aunt, a dying gay uncle, and the unyielding pressure to bring in the demanding crop of cherries, forces Howie to realize there is more to life than baseball.
