"Weir's (Long Night Moon) latest contemporary romance is a subtle yet shattering bucolic love poem of the American heartland. Lark Leopold, a sheltered young woman bearing the secret of painful sexual wounds, travels to Iowa to conduct a study on ""the contentment of cows."" She is attracted to a farmer, Nathan Senatra, but upon discovering his ex-wife floating face down in a cow pond, she suspects Nathan of the murder. But the murder plot is overshadowed by Nathan's and Lark's romantic torment as each has been wounded in ways that make love well-nigh impossible. Weir isn't maudlin, but rather endows her characters with a warm wit--and the ultimate resolution of their obstacles is an affirmation to the weariest reader." Publishers Weekly
Striking out on her own for the first time, Lark Leopold comes face-to-face with the steamy glare was of an impossibly rugged and handsome farmer.
Nathan Senatra's life is a mess and he doesn't have time for Lark's silly, bureaucratic, animal research. His wife has left him and taken almost everything he has. When her body is found in the pond behind his house, Nathan is the prime suspect. But are the cops focusing on the wrong person while a killer stalks the small community of Elizabeth, Iowa? Or is Nathan really capable of murder?
