Truth lies under the surface
WINNER, PNWA's Nancy Pearl Book Award for literary/contemporary fiction. Gordon Carlson's Chicagoland neighbors know a sweet old man with a green thumb and a big heart. His pain and shame live in the hidden, ragged corners of his self-imposed solitude. One morning in 1996 begins like no other. A whirlwind of despair, desperation, and deceit forces him from the comfort of his lonely routine. Sorting truth from lies can help him solve other people's problems, but he'll have to face his own past to do it. A past he'd much sooner forget. Hidden pictures hold the key if Gordon has the courage to find the lock.
