In the town of Bone Gap, some people fall through a gap and slip away...forever.

Most of the town thinks that Finn O’Sullivan is the reason Roza disappeared, but Finn knows better. He saw Roza taken by the man who walks like the corn, but without a better description than that, who will believe him?
This novel takes a hard look at small towns, our perceptions of beauty, disabilities and more, all within a magical realism framework. Loosely inspired by the myth of Hades and Persephone, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys lyrical writing and a cast of compelling, well-drawn characters.
