From the Author
I began my career in journalism as a reporter covering these small towns, 1,200 people and under. I wrote about politics, feuds and country fairs. I interviewed the famous and the humble.
Certainly the hilltowns inspired this novel although I attest the town, characters, and story come strictly from my imagination. But I'd like to think I could plunk the fictional Conwell near Worthington, Cummington, and Chesterfield, and it'd fit just fine.
