About the Book

The Thin Place

In a thin place, according to legend, the membrane separating this world from the spirit world is almost nonexistent.

The small New England town of Varennes is such a place, and Kathryn Davis transports us there-revealing a surprising pageant of life as, in the course of one summer, Varennes's tranquillity is shattered by the arrival of a threatening outsider, worldly and otherworldly forces come into play, and a young local girl finds her miraculous gift for resurrecting the dead tested by the conflict between logic and wish.
