Told entirely in letters this novel is Weird, sad, and uncomfortable, but ultimately hopeful.

How would someone cope with the aftermath of a mass shooting in a small town?

This is written by a LaSalle graduate and it’s set in a fictional Philadelphia suburb. I couldn’t help but associate Majestic, PA (the setting of the book) to Phoenixville and the Colonial Theater and that made it just feel that much more uncomfortable.

The acknowledgments mention he was inspired by Gordon Light foot’s song If You Could Read My Mind. I’m listening to that now as I wrote this. It feels right on.

All that said — I didn’t enjoy it but I’m also glad that I read it.

A quirky story that becomes enduring. A total departure from my normal choices.

I read this book straight through this afternoon. It was a Book of the Month choice in November of 2022 which had newer books placed on top of it until today when I finally pulled it out! The story follows Lucas Goodgame who lives in Majestic, PA, a small town suffering from a terrible tragedy. He sees his deceased wife, Darcy, every night in the form of an angel. It's only when Eli, an eighteen year old starts camping in his backyard that they start to work together to heal their town and themselves. So highly recommended! A perfect book to finish off this year.… (mere)
