The Road to Dalton

Life appears relatively quiet in this small rural community in Maine. Everyone has known each other forever and they think they know everything about each other too. But they don’t, the secrets are hiding in plain sight. Rose is married to a bully and arrives at her job in the police station unsuccessfully hiding her bruises. The attentive town doc, Richard Haskell, knows a lot about your blood pressure and indigestion but may be missing the emotional clues right in front of his face. His wife Trudy is the town librarian who is secretly in love with her best friend Bev. Bev’s son is a sweet, kind cop called Nate, married to Bridget, a darling girl secretly struggling with severe PPD. These are just a few of the endearing characters in the fictional town of Dalton, Maine. Each one is connected through invisible ties that weave a wonderful story of small town life. A little Olive Kitteridge simpleness with even more added to the imagination. As the characters realize there is more to the story, the reader does too. Quiet, well written and a most enjoyable read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
