In my novel The Dazzling Uncertainty of Life, Stephen Bennett slides off of an ice-covered hill and flips upside down in a brook, almost dying as a result. Earlier that same day, he’d been up on Sunrise Hill with his daughter Faye and her best friend Suzanna to release a hawk back into the wild.
Now Sunrise Hill is a beautiful spot, one treasured by the folks of Carding, Vermont. But for Stephen, the place has become haunted by his memories of what happened that day.
But Stephen is not a man who relishes fear so he’s decided it’s time to return to Sunrise Hill. It’s supposed to be a beautiful day tomorrow. Why don’t you come along?
Welcome to Carding, Vermont where life always includes a dash of the unexpected. You can find the little town that no one can seem to find on a map right here in the Carding Chronicles and in the four novels of Carding, Vermont, The Road Unsalted, Thieves of Fire, The Dazzling Uncertainty of Life, and Lights in Water, Dancing.
