Inhaltsangabe: Using small-town life as a springboard to explore the loftiest of ideas, Haven Kimmel?s irresistibly smart and generous first novel is at once a romance and a haunting meditation on grief and faith. Langston Braverman returns to Haddington, Indiana (pop. 3,062) after walking out on an academic career that has equipped her for little but lording it over other people. Amos Townsend is trying to minister to a congregation that would prefer simple affirmations to his esoteric brand of theology.
What draws these difficult?if not impossible?people together are two wounded little girls who call themselves Immaculata and Epiphany. They are the daughters of Langston?s childhood friend and the witnesses to her murder. And their need for love is so urgent that neither Langston nor Amos can resist it, though they do their best to resist each other. Deftly walking the tightrope between tragedy and comedy, The Solace of Leaving Early is a joyous story about finding one?s better self through accepting the shortcomings of others.
Inhaltsangabe: Langston Braverman finds herself back home ten years after leaving Haddington to pursue a career as an academic. Romantic literature qualifications and philosophical digressions don't hold much weight in Haddington though, and Langston's mother forces her into the role of carer for two suddenly orphaned little girls, daughters of her childhood friend Alice. Amos Townsend, the local preacher, has his doubts about Langston's suitability. But is he, suffering a crippling crisis of faith, any better placed to act as the girls' spiritual counselor? The four embark on a moving and funny emotional journey that might just be the biggest leap of faith any of them has ever taken.
