Synopsis: Saskia was a damaged, lonely teenager when she arrived at the lakeside commune called Home. She was entranced by the tang of sourdough starter; the midnight call of the loons; the triumph of foraging wild mushrooms from the forest floor. But most of all she was taken with Abraham, Home’s charismatic leader, the North Star to Saskia and the four other teens who lived there, her best and only friends.

Two decades later, Saskia is shuttered in her Connecticut estate, estranged from the others. Her carefully walled life is torn open by threatening letters. Unless she and her former friends return to the land in rural Maine, the terrible thing they did as teenagers—their last-ditch attempt to save Home—will be revealed.

I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about this book so I’m excited to get a copy of it from the publisher. I love stories of how characters having to confront something from their past. Of course in a psychological thriller this usually turns into a race to save yourself. Let’s see how this one turns out. Have you read this book or anything else by the author? Would love to hear if this is going on your summer read list.
