"This atmospheric read is simply beautiful"

In Franklin's second novel, we meet Jo and Tessa, both very different characters. Jo has returned to the place she grew up in order to save the family's butcher business. Tessa, the farrier, has returned too, but with a secret. Compelled through circumstances to live together, these two women face up to what it really means to live in a community and belong. This atmospheric read is simply beautiful.
