When Laurel Estabrook is attacked while riding her bicycle through Vermontâs back roads, her life is forever changed. Formerly outgoing, Laurel withdraws into her photography, spending all her free time at a homeless shelter. There she meets Bobbie Crocker, a man with a history of mental illness and a box of photographs that he wonât let anyone see. When Bobbie dies, Laurel discovers a deeply hidden secretâa story that leads her far from her old life, and into a cat-and-mouse game with pursuers who claim they want to save her. In a tale that travels between the Roaring Twenties and the twenty-first century, between Jay Gatsbyâs Long Island and rural New England, bestselling author Chris Bohjalian has written his most extraordinary novel yet.
