A Place of Forgetting
by Carolyn J. Rose
1966. Maplekill, New York. Liz Roark’s dreams turn to dust when a girl known only as April arrives with an engagement ring from Liz’s sweetheart, a Marine missing in Vietnam. Liz flees, but April hijacks her journey, rips her off, and dumps her at the remote Arkansas farm of a cranky psychic. Stranded with only a few dollars and a copy of Walden, Liz learns powerful lessons about love and trust.
