About the Book:
When the body of Alison Goss washes up on Menhaden Island, in the Gulf of Maine, the working class fishing community of hard-hewn ways and salty perspectives is faced with handling the future of her unusual son, Faron. They soon discover how different he is, in strange but endearing ways, including his fascination with moths and his stunning artistic talent.
“FARON GOSS is an incredibly well-written and considered novel with an intense and compelling protagonist. The story intrigues from the beginning, and combined with the descriptive beauty of the brooding, atmospheric landscape and wonderfully convincing characters, the book is a quietly powerful and absorbing read.” –IndieReader
