Hardcover in Dust Jacket. First Edition. No marks, no writing, no tears or wear. ; Retreating from divorce, geologist Jimmy Steverson buys a tiny mill house on Dillehay Pond. His real-estate agent is disgusted, his father observes that he's reliving summer camp, and his friends think of the place as a weekend fishing cabin. Jimmy likes walking out his back door to his own dock where his bass boat waits, but out his front door lies Randleman Road. The nine houses left isolated on the block after the construction of the super-highway are the remnants of a nineteenth-century Carolina mill village, and the people living in them are remnants, too. An arrest leaves one house vacant, and its unlikely new owner is Karen, a college professor whose life centers on a child with special needs. Karen rebuilds her house and her life, and she anchors Jimmy to the block. ; 282 pages
