In Vermont there is a Carthusian monastery, a vibrant community of Somali asylum seekers, and a hole in the social fabric after too many Vermont soldiers were killed in Afghanistan. From these seemingly disparate elements, Brad Kessler has crafted "a beautiful and moving tale" (Annie Dillard), shortlisted for both the Vermont Book Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. As a late spring blizzard brews, Brother Christopher tends to his prized apple trees, but he is pulled back into the world when the storm also brings Sahro Abdi Muse, a Somali girl, to the monastery.
