Staff Pick

When four-year-old Ruthie goes missing from the blueberry fields where her family works each summer, her brother Joe is the last to see her. What follows is a story of grief, hope, and extraordinary forgiveness surrounding an indigenous family. Spanning five decades, the narrative recreates the sense of an impending end and the melancholic memories of a dying man so vividly it puts the reader right in the room where Ruthie and Joe have reunited to recount what's transpired in their lives since that fateful day in the summer of 1962.
