200 years of history of the small, rural town of Blackwell, Massachsetts, begins with the arrival of the first settlers and moves forward in linked stories following a wide range of characters. The red garden, a small plot of land that eventually takes on the air of the sacred becomes a connecting element for the town history along with the women who play a role in the growth and change of the town. Beautifully written with an ethereal realism – a novel that bridges both history and human connections beautifully.
