End of Summer
A deceptively simple spiritual story about the inevitability of death, the interconnectedness of life, and the redeeming power of love.When twelve-year-old Nick Harper loses his father in an automobile accident, he enters a period of mourning that threatens to engulf him. His mother, badly injured in the crash, lies comatose in their home. For weeks he wanders about his family's Ohio farmland in a world of his own, while his aunt, nursing her own grief with red wine, looks on helplessly. Yet as the early summer sun warms the earth, something awakens inside of Nick and he slowly opens up to those around him, hoping to make sense of the terrible tragedy. But it is a force of nature that actually begins his healing: a voice calls to him, first as the cry of a frightened, lost soul, and by summer's end as a source of comfort and inspiration. A beautiful, mystical fable, The End of Summer will reaffirm your belief in the power of the human spirit.
