Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls to New York City, where they became lawyers. But when their sister, Susan, who still lives in Shirley Falls, asks them to come home after her teenage son, Zach, is accused of a hate crime, the three siblings are forced to re-examine their long-buried past. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Oliver Kitteridge (2008).
