Review by: Steve Alcorn on July 13, 2016 :
In this well-written novella, an interesting cast of characters--sometimes working at cross-purposes--become involved in determining the future of a small town.

I really enjoyed the way the author wove together multiple viewpoints and slowly revealed the story's backstory. The book is very well-written, with excellent use of dialogue and pacing to keep it interesting. A very enjoyable read.
