For more than a century, the small town of Haddan, Massachusetts, has been divided. It was as if a line were drawn down the center of Main Street, separating those born and bred in the village from those who attend the prestigious Haddan School. Then an inexplicable death thrusts the two worlds together, and, as the lives of everyone involved unravel, the town's divided history is revealed.

A photographer in plastic flip-flops and an overflowing backpack is about to marry a staid, ambitious historian.
