This is the second book in the series. It starts in 1929 with a character, Amos Kimble, who unlike the other books, is not from West Virginia, but from New York City. Fleeing from the stock market crash, he finds himself accidentally in Spencer, West Virginia. The novel switches back and forth in time between the years starting with 1976 and the years following 1929, until towards the end, when other years crop up. The focus of 1976 is Lois Shaffer who has started work at the Spencer State Hospital. This allows the novel to explore the theme of mental illness.
