Eden Close Author:Anita Shreve A compelling tale of edgy, small-town emotions, lingering obsession, and romantic salvation.
Andrew, after many years away, returns to his hometown to attend his mother's funeral. Planing to remain only a few days, he is drawn into the tragic legacy of his childhood friend and beautiful girl next door, Eden Close.
A great story! Some love and romance, some mystery and intrigue. Believable characters in semi-believable circumstances.Andy, Eden Close and her mother and father Edith and Jim are all intertwined in a rape, a murder, the blinding of a young girl and a small town in Kansas where everyone knows everyone else's business, or think they do. I definitely would recommend this...it's an excellent read.
This is a great story about the boy who always had a thing for the girl next door when they were kids.
But he goes away for almost 2 years. But when he comes back, they get conected again. Andrews learns more than he bargained for, and the end of the book is a big surprise. I really liked this book and enjoyed reading it.
