Written by Jacqueline Sheehan, a New England psychologist noted for her essays and the critically acclaimed novel Truth, based upon the life of abolitionist Sojourner Truth, this new trade fiction original is a stunning, shattering work that gently probes the human psyche to unveil a measure of what it takes to re-find oneself in a time of loss. The stages of grief sound hollow to the person stumbling through them. She forsakes her practice at a local university and devolves into unspeakable acts of sorrow. While scouring the wintry scrubland for strays, Rocky finds a dog with a handmade arrow sticking out of his shoulder. She is drawn to the wounded dog, and in searching for the person people responsible for his injuries, she adopts a journey to catharsis, as well.
