Summary
For readers of Atonement and The Heart's Invisible Furies comes a powerful, touching novel about a man on the run from himself, from Governor's General Award-winning author Kate Pullinger. On a foggy Vancouver sidewalk in 1995, an ailing homeless man fights for breath. Forest Green is the story of how he got there. Arthur Lunn was once the golden boy, a happy-go-lucky, mischievous child in a loving, working-class family in the Okanagan. And then a harrowing childhood trauma changed everything. The consequences of this one event will shape everything that follows, from Art's experiences as a soldier in World War Two to his reckless, nomadic working days in logging camps across British Columbia to his relationship with his one great love, Rose--a woman he cannot believe he deserves. Painful, poignant but ultimately full of hope, this book explores masculinity, coping mechanisms, the way trauma can warp our lives and the way love can ultimately mend them
