Summary
  • "The Barrowfields is a richly textured coming of age story about a boy who loses the larger-than-life lawyer/writer father that he grew up idolizing, subsequently leaves home in the NC mountains and spends years contending with forgiveness, falls in love, and finally returns" --
  • "Just before Henry Aster's birth, his father -- outsized literary ambition and pregnant wife in tow -- reluctantly returns to the small Appalachian town in which he was raised and installs his young family in an immense house of iron and glass perched high on the side of a mountain. There, Henry grows up under the writing desk of this fiercely brilliant man. But when tragedy tips his father toward a fearsome unraveling, what was once a young son's reverence is poisoned and Henry flees, not to return until years later when he, too, must go home again" --
